The Authority encourages homeowners to compost their yard wastes and food wastes at the source...your home! Composting reduces the amount of waste that requires transportation to landfills and ultimately, waste disposal costs. Your finished compost can be used to improve the soil quality in your vegetable garden, on your flower beds or even just spread on your lawn.

The Authority also encourages practicing water conservation by installing a rain barrel to collect rain water for watering your plants. It can lower your water bill and also allow watering of your plants during drought periods.
