Why Compost

Composting is a great way to easily turn organic household waste into something valuable for our gardens. Out of all the waste that goes to our local landfill every year, 26% could have been composted instead! Backyard composting reduces your family's greenhouse gas impact and creates a valuable soil amendment for your garden or flower bed.

Ontario County is excited to sponsor this event.Backyard composting is an easy way to increase waste diversion efforts at home.We hope to help jump start or support your backyard composting efforts by offering the necessary tools.
