Why Compost?

We are excited to be offering this bulk composter sale to Orange County residents in conjunction with our Co-Sponsor The Hudson Highlands Nature Museum and Butterfly Weekend, where $5.00 from the sale of each composter & rain barrel will be donated to the Museum . The goal of the program is to divert food scraps from the waste stream (up to 30% or more by weight is comprised of food scraps and compostable soiled paper and cardboard), and raise the awareness regarding the benefits of compost, 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:
