About half of what ends up in the landfill is compostable.
When organic materials mix in landfills detrimental greenhouse gasses and noxious leachates are created.
When we compost we divert these organic materials, keeping them out of landfills.
Instead of creating pollution, we create a valuable natural resource.
Compost can amend soil in ways that even the best artificial fertilizers can't.
It adds diverse nutrients and micronutrients, creates conditions for further symbiotic relationships and structures the soil for root growth, water retention, and aeration.
Composting also prevents erosion, and promotes healthy soil and food security in our communities!
By adding an additional bin to your waste stream for compostables, you can divert these “wastes” from becoming landfill pollution and help put substance back into the land.
