The organics waste stream is comprised of yard waste, food scraps and food soiled paper, totaling approximately one third of our total municipal solid waste (EPA 2013). After trying to prevent food waste from happening by right sizing meals and donating any still edible, non-perishable food to local food pantries you can compost your inedible food scraps at home right in your backyard. Composting is not only a great solution for reducing landfill waste but it can help sequester carbon from the atmosphere and improve soils in your garden.
