Why compost?

  • To produce an excellent fertilizer for your garden, your houseplants and your lawn in an inexpensive and ecological way.
  • To reduce the volume of your household waste and the corresponding space and cost of burying it in landfill. Approximately one third of your garbage consists of organic materials that can be composted.
  • To reduce the production of greenhouse gases due to transportation and landfilling.
