Organics have a hard time breaking down at landfills, so it is best to use them for composting instead of just tossing them at the dump. This way, they can break down naturally and return nutrients to the soil.
Many municipalities and waste haulers within Lenawee County offer yard waste pick up services throughout the year, but there are also other options for residents.
If you want a more hands-on approach to your composting, you can try backyard composting. This helps save money on mulch and fertilizer for your spring gardens.
