and maintain the pile. Compost bins fit easily in the back seat of a regular sedan for easy transport. Backyard composting is an effective and economical organics diversion solution.

Recycling Depots not Dumps
Proper sorting and the elimination of contamination are one of the keys to the success of any recycling program. By placing mixed recyclables in one bin at your depot
you could potentially contaminate an entire truckload of product. Your cooperation in placing materials in the proper containers is greatly appreciated.
