Composting yard materials and certain food scraps can provide valuable material and nutrients for gardens and landscaping while reducing costs for landfill disposal. Compost is a soil-like material produced from the breakdown of organic materials that is rich in stabilized carbon. Compost is considered a soil amendment, rather than a fertilizer, because it usually contains only small amounts of nutrients such as nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium. Lawn fertilizer contains significant amounts of all three.
Home composting can be done in bins or in a heap, however, bins are a better way to manage the materials in an urban setting.
Compost bins are available for $45.00 which includes tax and a recipe book. The bin measures approximately 3 feet wide by 3 feet tall and holds 13 cubic feet of material. If you would like to purchase a compost bin, please click here
