What is Composting?
Backyard composting is easy. Grass clippings, leaves, weeds, dead plants, non-woody clippings and vegetable and fruit scraps will break down inside the compost bin. Bins help keep compost tidy in small yards. When compost is dark brown, crumbly and looks like soil, it can be added tosoil in garden beds or placed under shrubs. Finished compost will improve your soil and feed your plants.
By composting you:
- Recycle plant waste back into the soil
- Help save space in the City Landfill
- Save $ on your garbage bill
