Green Tip: At-Home Composting

Every year, over 100 billion pounds of food is wasted in the United States. Unless you’re extremely diligent about your food scraps, we all create food waste. Instead of throwing out your scraps, think about how they can be better utilized through composting!

If you don’t have the space or time to create your own at-home composting system, we highly recommend signing up with a local company like Mr. Fox Composting.

If you do have the space and desire to create your own at-home composting system, there are lots of ways to do it!

  • You can purchase a compost bin – they come in all different shapes and sizes, and you can find one that works for your space.
  • You can build your own composting system with wooden pallets, a plastic tote or 30-gallon plastic drum, or many other common items.
  • You can go without a container and just bury your compost in your garden, which will then turn into fertilizer for your soil.
