Did you know that food scraps and yard waste that are often thrown away can instead be used to help nature thrive? These materials, when composted, can be added to soil in order to help plants grow. This means these scraps are being put to good use rather than being dumped in a landfill.
While you may not know the first thing about composting, it’s not terribly hard to get started! You can create a compost pile in your yard or even have a sealed composting bin in your home. Don’t worry – if done correctly, this new addition to your property shouldn’t attract any unwanted pests.
Additionally, you should always do your best to recycle. If your community’s garbage pickup doesn’t retrieve recyclables, you can always drop these items off at a local recycling center. There are countless resources available online to help you understand what items should be recycled and how to go about recycling them properly!
