Composting is Easy, Safe and Saves Money
Keep household trash out of landfills while creating RICH, HOMEMADE SOIL for use in your garden. It takes less than 5 minutes per day!
It may seem ‘icky’ at first, but composting creates less messy garbage. Simply keep a sturdy metal or plastic container with a secure top next to the kitchen sink and add these items:
Fruit and vegetable rinds, peels, pits, and scraps
Coffee grinds and tea bags
Cardboard egg cartons, food boxes, TP/paper towel rolls torn into pieces
Paper such as this flyer
Do not compost: meat, bones, dairy products, fatty foods
Place it all in a pile in your backyard, somewhere easily accessible but not too close to the house, or use a composting bin. If using the pile method, cover it with grass clippings and/or leaves. Try to have about equal amounts of “green” (the scraps) and “brown” (the leaves and clippings). Occasionally turn with a shovel.
