Why Compost?

Organic materials are highly recyclable and should be thought of as a resource, not a waste. The goal of this program is to raise public awareness of composting at home and the benefits of using compost to reduce our waste footprint and help improve or maintain high quality soil.

Composting kitchen food scraps and yard trimmings at home, and leaving grass clippings on the lawn, can reduce the volume of garbage you generate by as much as 25%!  Composting recycles organic waste into a usable product right in your own backyard. By adding compost to your gardens and lawns, you can conserve water, grow healthy plants, reduce the use of fertilizer and pesticides, and protect the environment.  Removing these materials from your regular trash collection also helps divert waste away from landfilling and waste to energy. A major benefit to composting is that you are helping your city or town reduce their disposal costs by reducing the amount of garbage being generated.

Why Use a Rain Barrel?

Why Compost

Collecting and using rainwater for outdoor use saves energy, helps conserve drinking water and reduces stormwater runoff.

The treatment and delivery of public drinking water is expensive and energy intensive. Public water supplies and private well water are limited resources that can be depleted. Using collected rainwater for watering lawns, gardens, and potted plants and for washing off patio furniture and tools can reduce the economic and environmental impact of water treatment and delivery and helps keep water in reservoirs and aquifers for when it is needed most.

Collecting rain water also helps reduce storm water runoff that can transport many pollutants to our local waterways and cause erosion. From a gardening perspective, rainwater is better for plants than most tap water because it does not contain chlorine or fluoride. Water collected in rain barrels should not be used to drink or bathe and rain barrels should be emptied and stored throughout the winter months.
