Why Compost?

Composting is a great way to reduce the amount of organic waste going into landfills which negatively contribute​s to climate change.  Composting can save money and resources by reducing your trash. The result is a healthier earth, no more smelly garbage ​and free nutrient rich soil.  Food and other organic wastes in Warren County trash ​constitutes up to 40% of the waste stream.  Food waste that decomposes in a landfill creates methane, a greenhouse gas which at most landfills is released directly into the atmosphere through vents.  Methane is more potent than carbon dioxide as a warming greenhouse gas, and contributes to climate change.

Composting is easy to do and has ​many benefits.  By tossing in your food scraps (veggies, grains, fruits) with an equal ​or greater amount of brown organics (leaves, twigs, dried grass, etc.)​, rich compost is created.  Using compost on your yard and garden​s returns valuable nutrients to ​the soil, help​ing​ recharge and maintain soil quality.  Naturally fertilizing plants with compost replac​es the need for harmful ​fertilizers and chemicals.  Everyone has food scraps and ​by composting organic waste you can make a difference.

Order your compost bin today and ​start composting!  For more information about backyard composting, please refer to the Composting link on the Town of Queensbury website  and also to the EPA website.

Warren County encourages residents to visualize your banana peels, watermelon rinds, veggie cuttings, bread and other grains, not as garbage, but as valuable resources to be incorporated into a backyard compost system, minimizing the amount of organic materials headed to the landfill or incinerator.
