COMPOSTING

composting

Compost is organic material that can be used as a soil amendment or as a medium to grow plants. It is created by combining organic wastes (e.g., yard trimmings, food wastes, manures) in proper ratios into piles, rows or vessels, and allowing the finished material to fully stabilize and mature through a curing process.

Once dominated by public sector operations, the industry is increasingly entrepreneurial and private-sector driven, led by firms that add value to compost products through processing and marketing. It is also fairly easy to set up a simple composting system in your own home.
