Inevitably, you will have some residual food waste – but don’t throw it in the trash! Organic matter (like food) that is thrown in the trash rots in landfills and produces methane, a dangerous greenhouse gas that is 80 times stronger in trapping heat in the atmosphere than carbon dioxide.
Prep before you compost: Before you throw food in the compost, take off stickers, rubber bands, tags, and any other non-organic materials. Throwing plastic into the compost bin can lead to finished compost containing microplastics, which can get into soils and groundwater.
Use compost in your garden: You’ll not only grow more nutrient-rich food that requires less watering, you’ll also increase soils’ ability to absorb excess carbon from the atmosphere to help curb climate change.
Or go to your local Compost Facility.
