Composting

 Composting is an excellent way to reuse organic waste.

 If you have a garden, using compost is an easy way of enhancing the quality of the soil without expensive additives, and on the other hand, spare the landfills of the unnecessary waste piling. If you still have not made your own compost, late summer and early autumn are ideal for organic waste compost preparation.

Consider beginning a compost bin in the fall, when you are cleaning up your garden and preparing for the cold months. If you start composting at this time, your pile will have time to grow so it will certainly be ready by spring. Your bin will be a great place to put the dead leaves you rake up, rather than bagging them and sending them to a landfill. As the winter months roll in, you may notice that your compost pile is not thriving like it was in the warmer months. In cold weather, the natural materials will not break down as easily as they did in the heat. Don't worry—as long as temperatures stay above freezing, your compost will continue to thrive. Continue adding to the pile as usual. In  order to compost, you will need a place for your pile, a bin (usually a metal bin, or a enclosed part of the garden), organic waste (food waste, grass clippings, fallen leaves...) the pile needs to be damp and it is ideal to be placed on a warm spot where the compost could develop easier and faster.
