Food scraps and compost


Introduction to Backyard Composting

  • Tuesday, June 21, 2022, 6:00 PM - 7:00 PM

Composting is an important action everyone can take to help create healthier soils, prevent food waste being sent to the landfill, and reduce emissions that contribute to climate change.

In this workshop, attendees will learn the basics of the composting process and how to create and maintain their backyard bin. We will explain each step of the composting process including site selection, the pros and cons of various composting bin types, acceptable materials to compost, and how to harvest and use the finished product.

Funding provided by the Broome County Division of Solid Waste Management.
