Compost food scraps and yard waste at home. In addition to creating mulch for yards and gardens, composting at home means residents will dispose of less material in their waste. See below for more information on composting and how-to links.
Composting at home has two main benefits: you dispose of less material while making mulch for your plants and composting has many benefits for the homeowner, including lower utility bills as well.
Composting at home requires a mix of materials high in nitrogen (such as grass clippings and leaves) and materials high in carbon (such as vegetable and fruit peelings).
