About Backyard Composting
Backyard composting turns organic material — such as leaves, grass, coffee grounds and vegetable matter — into a useful soil amendment that can help build healthy soils that need less water and synthetic fertilizers.
Over time, composting helps reduce waste, improve soil health and reduce stormwater runoff.
