Composting is nature’s way of recycling.  You can turn fruit, vegetables and yard waste into dark, crumbly, sweet-smelling soil amendment. Composting saves you money by lowering your garbage bill and avoiding the purchase of commercial fertilizers.

The addition of compost helps your garden and plants, saves water and, by keeping it out of your garbage bin, saves landfill space.

There are many methods of composting. Manufactured bins are available at most garden stores, or you can build your own compost bin. Salt Lake City’s addition of the brown curbside compost can allows all Salt Lake City residents to compost.
