Backyard Composting

To get started – yard waste only

  1. Locate the pile or bin at least 2 feet from any building, fence, or other structure
  2. Make sure you have both fresh (green) and dry (brown) plant material
  3. Build the pile
    1. Start with sticks and branches, to provide some aeration at the base
    2. Alternate layers of green and brown
    3. End with a brown layer
  4. Turn the pile as needed to ensure aeration
