Why this Matters
For My Organization
Composting reduces waste, thereby saving your organization money by decreasing the frequency of waste removal. It can also be used as fertilizer, keeping landscaping costs down.
For New Orleans
Composting reduces overall waste in cities and diverts organic matter from landfills that would ultimately produce methane and leachate formulation. Compost also enriches soil while cleaning it up, reducing the need for water, pesticides and fertilizer.
