This back-to-school season we’ve been talking about resetting your routine and setting a back-to-school resolution. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimates that more food waste reaches landfills than any other single material in our everyday trash. Backyard composting is the best way to manage food scraps, other organic waste, and yard waste.
Ready to get started composting at home? We’re here to help! We recently updated the resources on our website (click here) for both new and seasoned composters. We also have an upcoming sale of backyard composting kits. The sale opens September 12, find all the details here. Don’t hesitate to reach out with any composting questions or if you aren’t sure if composting is right for you. I’d love to chat with you about it. You can contact me at (585) 337-4712 or Kaitlynn.McCumiskey@ontariocountyny.gov.
Interested in diverting food waste and other organics from the landfill, but don't have the space or don't want to compost at home? Stay tuned next week for more information about curbside and drop off composting services.
