Home Composting > What is composting?
Organic wastes, such as materials from the kitchen and garden, have a common characteristics that distinguishes them from other household wastes : they decompose quickly. This decomposition and subsequent return to the soil, is entirely natural and is a key cycle upon which all life depends. When this material is separated from other household waste, and allowed to decompose in the presence of air and a certain amount of water, organic waste is converted into a crumbly soil-like material called compost. The composting process involves millions of tiny creatures, most of which are too small to be seen by the naked eye. These creatures include bacteria, insects, fungi, and worms. Composting turns your waste into a useful product.
