Composting in the news
Celebrating 30 Years
Organic waste comprises 30 percent of the household trash going into landfills and incinerators, where it has no chance to decompose and offers very little BTU value. Homeowners who compost not only extend the life of our landfills and reduce the cost of collecting household garbage, but also recycle the nutrients in organic waste to create a valuable soil amendment for their gardens.
We want to encourage backyard composting so that everyone can enjoy the benefits of improving or maintaining high-quality soil, growing healthy plants, reducing the use of fertilizer and pesticides, improving water quality, and protecting the environment. By adding compost you can conserve water and help improve soil to help hold water in the root zone.
