Why Should I Compost?
Did you know that food waste accounts for approximately 20% of our household trash? Composting keeps organics out of landfills, reduces waste, and puts valuable nutrients back into our food cycle. When food scraps end up in landfills, they emit methane, a potent greenhouse gas contributing to climate change. By composting in your backyard, you are diverting the waste from the landfill and reducing your carbon footprint.
How Do I Compost?
