Backyard Composting


“Composting is a great way to recycle our organic “waste” into a beneficial soil amendment for our yards and gardens. Composting at home can also help reduce methane production at landfills. Using the compost in our landscapes helps store carbon in the soil instead of releasing it to the atmosphere. Compost creates healthy soil, reducing or eliminating the need for fertilizers, pesticides and irrigation. And we can reduce our trash by 50 percent or more by composting leaves, grass clippings, garden debris, fruit peels, vegetable scraps, tea bags, coffee grounds, eggshells, paper towels, napkins and even paper bags.”

“New Age” Composters 

“New Age” composters are easy to put together, resistant to rodents, break down organic materials well and have expandable capacity up to 24 cubic ft. At least half of the plastic that goes into them comes from products that consumers have used and recycled previously and are made locally in New Bedford, MA.
