Composting is an easy way to reduce the amount of waste you send to the curb.
You can construct a bin or buy a pre-made unit.
Locate your compost near a water spigot so you can easily keep it moist. Your site should be partly sunny, with good drainage.
The pile should be built in layers, each three to four inches deep. First lay down a “green” layer of grass clippings, and vegetable or fruit scraps. Next, add a layer of “brown” materials like leaves, twigs, or sawdust. Then add another green layer and so on.
Moisten each layer as you build the pile, and turn your compost often to speed up the composting process.
