Backyard and community gardening have become popular again, especially as people try to ensure a secure a source of food. The key to growing healthy food is having healthy soil, and “black gold” or compost is a great way of providing nutrients to help a garden grow.

Municipal composting programs are one way to provide community members with an option to compost, helping a community reduce food waste, cut greenhouse gases and promote stewardship.
