• Composting Benefits

    Soil conditioner: With compost, you are creating rich humus for lawn and garden. This adds nutrients to your plants and helps retain moisture in the soil.

    Recycles kitchen and yard waste: Composting can divert as much as 30% of household waste away from the garbage can.

    Introduces beneficial organisms to the soil: Microscopic organisms in compost help aerate the soil, break down organic material for plant use and ward off plant disease.

    Good for the environment: Composting offers a natural alternative to chemical fertilizers.

    Reduces landfill waste: Most landfills in North America are quickly filling up; many have already closed down. One-third of landfill waste is made up of compostable materials.
