What is Compost?

Composting is the natural process of taking decaying organic material and turning into an organic fertilizer.


Materials include food scraps and yard waste such as grass clippings or leaves. With moisture, heat, and time, these materials transform into an amazing and renewable resource.

Why Compost?

Organic materials have a life cycle and we as humans should honor that cycle. When organic material is put into the waste stream its life cycle is cut short. These materials should be kept out of landfills. Composting can remove 30%-40% of a homes waste out of the landfill. 


Compost also improves soil structure so that soil can easily hold the correct amount of moisture, nutrients and air.  It also helps reduce the use of harsh synthetic chemical fertilizers.

We offer weekly or bi-weekly (twice a month) curbside pickup of your food scraps and yard debris. We provide you with a container for inside the home and one for outside the home.

Tip of the Month

Mulch leaves right back into the yard!

The best way to compost fallen leaves is to mulch them right back into the yard. Most mowers today are mulching mowers also known as a 3 in 1 mower.  This means that the blade will chop fallen leaves into tiny pieces that put nutrients right back into the yard.
