Compost in hand

The food cycle is all about helping completing nature’s own mechanism for recycling and growth. With as much as 23% of local landfill content coming from food waste, you have the ability to reduce waste and reduce greenhouse gas emissions!

What difference will you make?

Less waste

The majority of what we throw in the garbage can be given a new purpose. With your new composting habit, your motto can be that nothing goes to waste.

Better soil

Compost-amended soils are incredibly fertile. Your food scraps are converted to rich compost instead of being sealed in a landfill.

Community

Composting is an opportunity to support the community with cleaner air and to share the fruits of your composting journey with neighbors and family so they can see with their own gardens how truly awesome compost is!

Don't let waste go to waste

The average family generates about 17.4 pounds of garbage each day, or 6,351 pounds per year. When sent to landfills, this produces over 12,000 pounds-equivalent of CO2 into the atmosphere while contributing nothing back to the earth. According to the US Environmental Protection Agency, “organic materials continue to be the largest component of [trash]”, with compostable material accounting for over half of waste discarded to landfills, where they produce greenhouse gases, and will never return to the earth.
