    Information about why composting is so important:

    -Composting is the process of mixing organic yard and kitchen waste to produce nutrient-rich humus to enrich soil -According to the US EPA, compostable materials (paper products, yard trimmings, food scraps) made up over half of the 250 million tons of waste Americans sent to landfills in 2008.

    -According to, organic waste in plastic-lined landfills produces greenhouse gases such as methane as it slowly decomposes anaerobically (without oxygen). These greenhouse gases contribute to global warming.  By composting these waste products, you reduce the amount of greenhouse gases that America’s landfills produce.

    Composting at home and at WSCA is a great habit to develop.  It is a win-win situation for you and the environment.
