Today is "Learn About Composting Day"
May 29, 2015

Composting kitchen scraps and yard trimmings can limit the amount of food you waste and help reduce your impact on landfills. In fact, if you compost on a continual basis, the volume of garbage you generate can be reduced by as much as 25%!

Compost is an eco-friendly, cheap and effective option for fertilising your garden, plants and crops. Learn About Composting Day encourages you to explore the world of composting, and to identify all of the different types of household waste that can contribute to your composting efforts.

Get started with composting by following this simple guide: http://www.compost-info-guide.com/beginner_guide.htm

If you're interested in starting a composting program at your business or place of employment, learn more about the Johnson County Green Business Program.
