Backyard Composting

Leaves, grass and plant trimmings can be combined with fruit and vegetable scraps in a compost bin to create a rich organic material for your lawn and garden. That’s recycling at its best!

The benefits of composting: 


• Reduce yard, garden, and food waste  
• Reduce water and fertilizer required for your lawn and garden
• Improve soil quality and supply essential nutrients for plant growth
