Why Compost?

Composting food is a great way to remove food from the waste stream and create a natural soil rich with nutrients to fertilize your garden.

  1. Reduces the amount of trash for disposal.
  2. Increases soil enrichment.
  3. Increases plant disease resistance.
  4. Encourages beneficial bacteria.
  5. Saves money on water, fertilizer and pesticides.
