Why Compost?

Food waste and yard trimmings comprises approximately 32 percent of the residential trash going into landfills in Hamilton County.* By composting in your backyard, you can divert about 600 lbs of waste a year. Backyard composting reduces your family's greenhouse gas impact and creates a valuable soil amendment for your garden. Want to learn more? Check out this cool video

You can also look at the Hamilton County Waste Composition Study.    

Why Use a Rain Barrel?

There are several environmental benefits associated with rain barrels. Foremost, rain barrels reduce storm water runoff, this is water that does not soak into the ground and can transport many pollutants to our local waterways. By using harvested rainwater for watering lawns, gardens, potted plants and for washing off patio furniture and tools, rain barrels conserve water. From a gardening perspective, the natural nutrients in rain water make it far better than tap water, which has chlorine and fluoride in it.

Q&A and Pick-up Details
