GREEN FACT: Each year, Wisconsin households send 600 million lbs of “food waste” and compostable material to our landfills!


Composting is recycling in the most basic sense. It takes materials from the home and yard and returns them to the environment in a usable form. Composting can reduce the amount of trash put into landfills, and it can be a viable alternative to getting rid of yard waste - especially where leaf burning and lawn clipping disposal is outlawed. Composting is also a great way to get rid of food waste from fruits and vegetables. Whether you are composting because you want to improve the environment or out of necessity, it can be an easy and enjoyable - not to mention, cost-effective - thing to do.

 


Home composting can be done with bins or in a heap, however, bins are an easier way to manage the materials in an urban setting.
