Compost is decomposed organic materials. It is a natural soil amendment that helps hold soil together and helps soil hold more water. Compost contains nutrients plants need and reduces the amount of chemical fertilizers needed, thereby saving you money! With approximately 25% of our landfill bound waste being food waste, compost also reduces the amount of waste that enters our landfills.
Whether as an individual, as a business, organizing a clean up, or creating a waste-free event, here are some tips to reduce litter.
Recycling programs differ by county. To find out what you can recycle, and the rules and procedures for storage and pick-up, contact your local solid waste coordinator or waste hauling company. Some items that are almost always accepted for recycling are: paper (office paper, newspaper, junk mail, magazines), cardboard and fiberboard boxes, plastic bottles with a neck, steel food cans, and aluminum beverage cans.
