Home composting can help municipal compost programs by cutting down on the volume of materials they need to manage and site traffic. This option can be attractive to certain households that wish to save trips to the drop off site, desire to make their own compost, or reduce the volume of their household trash.
Household food scraps can be turned into rich compost for your garden or plants. Not only does home composting provide excellent compost, but you can reduce the amount of materials going into your garbage. Large, 13-cubic foot compost bins with locking lids are available at the Recycling Center for $60.00 (tax included).
