Home composting

Home composting of yard waste and select kitchen waste takes materials that could have wound up in a landfill and converts them into rich compost, a useful product for our South Florida trees and gardens. Anything that was a plant - leaves, grass clippings, fruit and vegetable scraps, etc. - can be composted.
