Yard Waste

After you Reduce – Reuse – Recycling, try Composting!  Composting is #4 on the Hierarchy of Solid Waste Management options.  You can either spend a lot of time composting and have a faster moving pile, or work at it a little for a slower moving pile.  Either way, you end up with a rich soil amendment that will help make your flowers and plants healthier and have a greater resistance to diseases and insects.

Rusk County Recycling has composting information including brochures and diagrams on how to build your own compost bin.  Try also visiting these sites:

Also check out Recipes for Composting for a shopping list and recipes for a “Lazy Person’s Compost” and “Fast Compost”.
