Compost is great for gardens and landscaping and you save money by not having to buy soil conditioners, mulch, and fertilizer. At home composting reduces the cost of yard trimming collection and processing, keeps kitchen wastes out of the landfill, and turns organic material into valuable product for gardens and house plants.


Composting is nature's way of recycling. It is a satisfying way to turn fruit, vegetable and yard trimmings into a dark, crumbly, sweet smelling soil conditioner. Composting is easy, it's smart, it's recycling.  Composting:

  • Saves you money by lowering garbage bills and replacing store-bought soil conditioners.
  • Helps garden and house plants by improving the fertility and health of your soil.
  • Saves water by helping the soil hold moisture and reducing water runoff.
  • Benefits the environment by recycling valuable organic resources and extending the life of our landfills.
