Myth: Waste simply biodegrades in the landfill.

Reality: Nothing biodegrades in a landfill because nothing is supposed to.

Food waste and yard trimmings make up more than a quarter (28.2 percent) of the U.S.’ garbage and are organic and easily compostable.  Black Earth Compost is currently offering curbside composting in The Pinehills and because we’re not too far away they just need 50 Chiltonville residents to preregister in order to extend the service to us. There’s no commitment, it’s simply an indication of interest.
