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