Compost is the natural recycling of yard or food wastes that produces a humus valued by farmers, gardeners and landscapers because it improves soil conditions.
ARE YOU TIRED OF RAKING LEAVES?
Try mulching! Use a lawn mower to cut up leaves. Then leave them for fertilizer and protection against the harsh winter. But if you must rake your leaves, use the brown biodegradability lawn bags. It's the law!
Composting is easy and FREE! Make your own compost bin.

What you do: Choose a corner of your yard for the compost bin. Hammer the four posts into the ground. Wrap the chicken wire or mesh netting around the posts, secure with the ties. Place yard waste inside of the square. Turn the leaves and grass clippings with a rake every few weeks. Once the yard waste is decomposed use it in your flower beds and gardens.
