Helpful Hint for the Month

With the warm days of spring and the impending yard work just around the corner, don’t forget to keep the environment in mind as you gather branches, leaves, and other unwanted yard materials. Research indicates that up to 20% of our collected waste material is natural materials such as food scraps, grass cuttings, leaves, branches, twigs, and other compostable materials. Contrary to popular belief, these materials generally don’t degrade or decompose in a modern landfill. Modern landfills are sealed from moisture and oxygen, resulting in a waterproof and airproof environment that prevents the decomposition of most materials.

Why not save landfill space by starting a compost pile for the smaller items such as food scraps, leaves and grass cuttings? A compost pile will provide a valuable soil additive for your yard or garden. Look on the internet or feel free to contact the Licking Co. Recycling office at 740-670-5125 for more information about composting and worm farms.
