Composting & Yard Waste

Composting is a biological process in which organic material such as fruits, vegetables, leaves, and plant trimmings are converted into a soil like material called humus. During this process, thousands of bacteria, insects, and fungi feed on, break down, and digest the organic matter leaving behind rich dark humus, also called finished compost. The speed at which the composting process occurs depends on the amount of air, moisture, and type of materials in the pile or bin.
