HELP KEEP YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD “GREEN” THIS FALL BY COMPOSTING YARD WASTE. As leaves start to change, there’s a good chance you will be joining your neighbors in the annual fall task of raking the yard. What you may not realize is that those beautiful golden leaves are bad for the environment if put in the trash. Yard waste buried in a landfill doesn’t disintegrate, will never turn into soil, and can do real damage by producing nasty byproducts like methane.
The good news is, there are several facilities that offer free yard waste composting. By taking the time to compost, you’re turning trash into treasure. Composted yard waste gets turned into a nutrient-rich material that can go on to produce healthier flowerbeds, parks and gardens for years to come.
If you would like to help the environment, you will want to stay away from conventional plastic yard waste bags. Unlike the paper alternative, plastic does not compost. Plastic bags increase the processing costs and result in lower quality compost. Alternately, yard waste put into paper bags can be added directly to the compost pile with no additional effort.Visit http://www.myhelpfulace.com/leaf to see a list of local composting facilities near you.
