Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Composting is the natural aerobic (with oxygen) decomposition of organic matter into nutrient rich soil.
  1. Composting diverts our food scraps from landfills and incinerators
    • Our landfills are filling up, leading to longer and longer hauling distances, higher greenhouse gas emissions, higher waste management costs, and less space available for our trash. Composting could cut back our solid waste stream by as much as 33%.
    • When food scraps are left in a landfill or incinerated they release CO2, a green house gas.
  2. Composting is a sustainable alternative that puts the nutrients from our food scraps back into the earth and, eventually, our food system by using the finished compost as a fertilizer for local farms.
  3. Composting is the final step to completing a truly sustainable food cycle system.
