FREE COMPOST GIVEAWAY OCTOBER 19-26 AT COMMUNITY CENTER FOR COLMA RESIDENTS ONLY!
Benefits of composting:
- Reduces greenhouse gases.
- Less organic waste to landfills means less greenhouse gases. Organic waste in landfills emits methane, a super pollutant that has 84 times more global warming potential than carbon dioxide.
- Organic waste becomes compost, a beneficial soil amendment
- Organic waste is collected and then processed into compost—a nutrient-rich soil amendment that helps soils retain water and eliminates the need for chemical fertilizers. Colma residents receive compost periodically for free!
Keep your pumpkin happy-compost it!
Keep your pumpkin happy after Halloween and place it in your green organics cart for composting! Just be sure to remove the candle and any other added decorations before you drop it in your organics cart. To avoid a sticky mess, place some cardboard, leaves, or other yard trimmings in the cart first.
Helps meets new law to reduce organic waste to landfill.
SB 1383 is a California law that requires residents and businesses to participate in an organics recycling program. This is an essential step to reduce greenhouse gas emissions 40% by 2030.
