Did you know that backyard composting is a simple and cost-effective way to fight climate change at home?

Here are the facts:

  • Food scraps and yard waste currently make up more than 30% of what we throw away; 
  • Organic waste that decomposes in landfills emits methane, a greenhouse gas 84 times more potent than carbon dioxide for 20 years after it enters the atmosphere.
  • Composting enriches soil, helping to retain moisture, reducing the need for chemical fertilizers, and suppressing plant diseases and pests.

How can you start composting?  It’s easy...
