How to Compost
Composting is the process of breaking down organic material back into soil. Compost is a natural way to provide nutrients to plants and crops and helps offset the use of chemical fertilizers.
What is a commercial composter?
A commercial composter is a business or facility that collects food waste and other organic materials and processes them back into natural fertilizer, referred to as "compost." Composting uses heat, moisture, and biological processes to break down food, yard waste, and other organic materials, including compostable products. Certified compostable products, such as plates, cups, bowls, utensils, and trash bags, are accepted by many commercial compost facilities. Commercial composting facilities are not accessible in all regions and may not be available near you. You can use the list above to see if there is a commercial compost facility near you.
