Can I do this at home?


Yes you can!

Composting at home is a simple step you can take to reduce your carbon footprint, mitigate greenhouse gas emissions, replenish the health of your soil and nourish your garden.  You’ll be thrilled by how easy and rewarding home composting of food scraps and yard waste is and amazed by how much less trash you put out on the curb each week.  Feel good knowing you are doing your part to combat global warming, restore carbon to our soils, prevent water pollution from chemical fertilizer run-off, and keep organics out of landfills.  Close the loop in your own backyard!
