Go Green with Curbside Composting on Earth Day!

Springtime is a great time to re-organize and re-think your lifestyle.  With more and more awareness of the needs of the earth, along with our own needs it's sometimes tough to know what "1st Step" to take to make changes that really make a difference. One easy earth friendly choice is to start to recycle, but that can sometimes feel like an ominous chore that's more trouble than it might be worth. What if your local community had a resource for composting that was convenient, fun and really made a difference? What if your next earth-friendly move was as easy as an extra bucket and a trip to the curb? Well guess what? Community composting services are on the rise, helping hundreds of households make going green simple and super easy.
