Yard and food wastes, alone, make up 28 percent of the waste stream (EPA, Municipal Solid Waste in The United States: 2012 Facts and Figures.) Composting is a perfect way to reuse the nutrients captured in those wastes and save landfill space.

Composting recycles organic wastes into a useful product that can be used by consumers, businesses and government agencies to enhance the health of soil and increase water-holding ability. Follow the links below to learn more about compost in Montana.
