What is Composting?
Composting is a process through which people make use of nature's normal decomposition to create rich soil fertilizers from our kitchen, home, and yard waste materials. The process is in its essence incredibly simple: gather safe waste from your home, kitchen, or yard into a bin, pile, or pit and let nature do the rest. To get more effective composting, however, can take a little elbow grease and some know-how.
In fact, Environment Erie holds composting workshops in the Erie area occasionally where they give out free composters to those who attend the workshop. This would be a free and convenient way to get started on composting those items that do not need to be thrown into the garbage can.
