Benefits of Composting
Diverting food and yard waste from a landfill directly decreases global warming produce methane, a powerful greenhouse gas 21 times more potent than carbon dioxide and leach toxic chemicals into our air and drinking water.
By composting, you can eliminate another 25% of what's currently in your
trash. Food decomposes by itself in nature. However, it is one of the largestcomponents in landfills, accounting for nearly 50% of all municipal
solid waste. There is more food in landfills than diapers, styrofoam,
and tires — combined.
Compost can reduce soil erosion, prevent storm water runoff,
and replenish exhausted farm soils by replacing trace minerals and
organic material, reducing the need for chemical fertilizers.Composting, instead of wasting, gets us closer to the things we all really want and need—healthy food, abundant resources, clean air and
water, safe and reliable products, and healthy families and communities.Garbage disposals are not necessarily bad,so if you want to keep using
yours you can do so. However, use the organics bucket for things that
you can't put in the disposal -eg banana peels, watermelon rinds,
lettuce, napkins, pizza boxes, and tissues, etc. And if you were going
to ask whether composting is better, I'd say yes, food waste adds
undesirable nutrients to wastewater, requiring costly treatment to
remove them. In other words: better not to dirty the water, turn it in
to valuable dirt, instead.Landfill costs are skyrocketing, which means higher
fees (or taxes) for everyone. The organic nutrients present in food and
paper waste are removed from the food chain, requiring gardeners and
farmers to instead rely on chemical fertilizers to replenish their
