"Bring nature's recycling center to your home"

The transportation and disposal of yard waste and kitchen scraps consumes valuable resources and landfill space. Backyard composting is a simple way to help reduce these impacts. The City's Resource Recovery & Recycling Division can get you started with the SoilSaver Composter, a popular bin that adds convenience and speeds the composting process.  Included with the bin is a how-to booklet.  We also sell worm bins.  Worm castings are an outstanding garden fertilizer.
