Learn how to make something beneficial for your garden from things
you are already throwing away!
This is Riverside County's Backyard Composting Program! This program has been developed to aid the residents of Riverside County in composting their organic material, into a useful product and keep more waste out of our landfills.
Composting is Nature’s way of recycling. By definition, composting is the controlled decomposition of organic material such as leaves, twigs, grass clippings, and vegetable food waste.
Compost is the valuable soil product that results from proper composting. Composting helps to keep the high volume of organic material out of our landfills and turns that material into a useful product.
Compost is great for gardens and landscaping, and you can save money by buying less soil conditioner, mulch, and fertilizer.
Composted material is actually rather expensive to buy. Anyone with a little extra room in a garden, a little extra time, and a good source of compostable materials can produce good, high quality compost in as little as 6 weeks.
When you compost, you return the earth's nutrients back to the soil, where your plants absorb them and grow healthy and strong. Healthy plants are far more resistant to diseases and pests.
Instead of throwing away your organic waste, compost it! Be a part of prolonging the life of Riverside County's landfill space by composting at home.
It is a satisfying way to turn fruit, vegetable and yard trimmings into a dark, crumbly, sweet smelling soil conditioner. Composting is fun, easy, and educational.
Geobins will be available for purchase while supplies last for $12 by CHECK ONLY by Riverside County residents (limit 3 per household; proof of residency required).
Drum composting is the easiest way to compost, and you can compost meat/poultry and fish without attracting rodents in the Jora drum composter that I offer on my website (this is an unusual benefit--Jora is the only composter you can do this with). Soon I will have a free download about how to choose the best composting method for you. Until then, here is the link: http://www.whitelotusliving.com/best-drum-composter-c195.html
