Composting Tips for Homeowners - J.P. Weigand & Sons, Inc.

The American family is thinking more and more seriously about living healthy lives, cooking at home, and doing their part to nurture the planet. More cooking means kitchen garbage just keeps growing. Instead of dumping it all into landfills, conscientious homeowners are diverting organic waste to their gardens to return precious nutrients to the soil. For those who have always just bought a bag of fertilizer from a home improvement store, our real estate agents offer a few tips to help you try something new.

  • Learn to Recognize Appropriate Materials
    You might think that you can just throw any garbage into a compost pile, but there's a little more to it than that. Some items are intuitive, such as vegetable peels, fruits, and coffee grounds. Some items you shouldn't include may surprise you, such as meat, dairy products, and fish, as they attract pests and even diseases. Several non-profit organizations offer extensive lists of dos and don'ts for your benefit.
