COMPOSTING

Compost with us.

What is Compost?

Compost is organic material that can be added to soil to help plants grow.

 

Why should you Compost?

According to the EPA, Food scraps and yard waste together currently make up more than 28 percent of what we throw away, and should be composted instead. Making compost keeps these materials out of landfills where they take up space and release methane, a potent greenhouse gas.

How can you Compost with us?

Feeding Laramie Valley accepts compostable materials from the public year-round, 24/7.

You can bring your compostables to the back of the Feeding Laramie Valley building at LaBonte Park, 968 N. 9th St.

 

Drop your compostables in plastic bins with yellow covers that say compost. Our team takes these bins to our composting system at our local farm.

We accept: all uncooked fruit and vegetable scraps, egg shells, coffee grounds, coffee filters, and tea bags. 

 

We cannot accept: any cooked foods, meats, paper, cardboard, or yard waste (wood, sticks, leaves, grass trimmings etc.)
