Composting

Composting Benefits
Even for individuals with small yards, composting can be a great way to deal with disposal of food wastes, lawn clippings, and certain types of yard debris. Composting saves space in landfills and provides you with a nutrient rich soil amendment that can be used to fertilize your home garden, or even house plants.

Composting Guides
The Washington State University Whatcom County Extension has put together a great website containing information about composting in Whatcom County. The Publications and Factsheets section is the best place to get started on your own composting project, but browse around to learn all about composting.
