Backyard composting sounds like a great idea, but if you’re not dedicated to the process, it can quickly turn into an upsetting venture. A good compost requires the proper proportion of food waste to lawn clippings to paper scraps, frequent turning of the pile, suitable temperatures, and the right moisture levels. Without these conditions, your attempt at composting kitchen waste could essentially end up as a stinky pile of garbage in your backyard, attracting unwanted pests like rats and other wildlife. So what to do? Hire Earth Mama Compost to do your dirty work! Compost pickup services have sprung up all over the country, and our mission is to collect your compostable kitchen scraps and drop them off at a local farm or compost facility, far away from landfills – all for just a small fee.
What are the benefits of composting? Besides
creating a rich soil fertilizer some refer to as “black gold”, it keeps over 36 million tons of food waste and organic matter out of landfills, where,
as it degrades, emits methane, a greenhouse gas 20 times more potent
than carbon dioxide in contributing to global warming.
Food that gets thrown down the garbage disposal enters the sewage
system, and the cost of cleanup is much more than the cost of composting.
At Earth Mama Compost, central Indiana's only curbside composting pickup service, we are committed to helping you, your family, or your business, dispose of food waste in an environmentally responsible way. We provide you with a composting receptacle and 100% certified compostable liners.
