Backyard composting is a cost effective and environmentally friendly way for you to produce nutrient-rich soil for your yard and garden, even if you already use your Green Bin. You can recycle:
- Garden and yard trimmings
- Uncooked food scraps, like vegetable and fruit peelings
- Egg shells
- Coffee grounds and tea bags
Avoid odours and attracting rodents and pests. Fish, meat, dairy, and grain products, grease, oil, and cooked foods like pasta and rice decompose too slowly in a backyard composter. Put these items in your Green Bin for collection.
