Why Compost?

  • Composting provides a free, top-notch soil conditioner that improves plant, garden and lawn growth.
  • Compost acts like a sponge, helping soil retain moisture and nutrients.
  • Compost helps break down heavy clay soils or helps to bind sandy soils.
  • Soils rich in compost experience less erosion and reduced quick runoff.
  • By returning nutrients back into the soil, compost reduces the need for expensive chemical fertilizers.
  • Composting household materials will save landfill space. The amount of waste you send to the landfill will be reduced by 1/3 to 1/2.
  • It’s easy! You don’t need any technical knowledge or equipment.
