Turn organic waste into plant food

Composting is nature’s way of recycling – taking organic waste like orange rinds, egg shells and even hair clippings and turning it into a nutrient-rich soil perfect for fertilizing plants and gardens. Requiring about the same effort as it takes to bring your blue bin curbside once a week, backyard composting is a simple and highly effective way to reduce your waste stream up to 50 per cent. You can build your own backyard composter or buy an easy-to-assemble model at most home

supply stores.
