In effort to promote backyard composting at Orange Environment’s ‘Practice Sustainable Living’ workshop, Orange County is offering local residents compost bins at discounted rates. Food waste contributes to the cost of trash removal and contamination of recycled materials. By composting we can reduce overall waste, and create wonderful amendments to our garden soil.
We want to encourage backyard composting so that all Orange County residents enjoy the benefits which include improving or maintaining high quality soil, growing healthy plants, reducing the use of fertilizer and pesticides, improving water quality and protecting the environment. By adding compost you can conserve water and help improve soil to help hold water in the root zone. Want to learn more? Check out this great video:
For more information on solid waste and recycling please visit the Orange County website or email email@example.com.
“Attention Orange County residents, have you ever wanted to start backyard composting but weren’t sure how? Would you like to purchase the required tools for composting at a discounted price? We have good news! The Orange County Division of Environmental Facilities & Services is making available for purchase discounted composting bins and rain water barrels for individual use. This will help residents reduce waste, protect the environment, and grow healthy plants. These items can be purchased through this website: https://orangecompostersale.ecwid.com/
