Composting is the natural process of decay resulting in a nutrient rich soil called humus. Living organisms, like worms, bacteria, and beetles, help break down organic material to produce compost. Organic materials, that originate from your yard and your kitchen account for 30% of the material entering the landfill. By composting organics, valuable space can be saved in landfills, and fees for disposal of these items can be eliminated.

Small items will decompose faster. If possible, chop materials into pieces as small as possible. This will help to speed up the process. Use the lawn mower to chop up coarse garden prunings.
