Composting is the natural
process of decomposition of organic material into a rich soil amendment.
Composting helps to reduce the amount of organic materials being thrown
out in the trash. Studies indicate that most household garbage contains
about 25% organic, compostable material! Backyard composting is easy and
affordable. In fact, it may save you money in the long run by reducing
the amount you pay to dispose of your trash. Yard wastes such as leaves
and grass clippings can be used as well as food scraps."Earth Machine" backyard composters
are available to all District residents at a reduced price.
