In Horizon West, a composting service called O-Town Compost has been working to educate residents about the benefits of composting and making it easy for them to participate. There are many benefits to composting, including reducing the amount of waste sent to landfills, reducing greenhouse gas emissions, and conserving natural resources. Composting also helps to improve soil health and fertility, which can lead to healthier plants and better crop yields.
According to O-Town Compost, in 2022, 56 households have composted 22,904 lbs of organic waste through their service. Composting is a simple and effective way to reduce waste and improve soil quality. By breaking down organic materials such as food scraps and yard waste, composting creates a nutrient-rich soil amendment that can be used to improve the health and productivity of gardens and farms.
Participating in O-Town Compost is simple and convenient. Households can sign up for the service and receive a 5-gallon bucket, which they can use to collect food scraps and yard waste. The O-Town Compost team then picks up the waste weekly and brings it to a composting facility, where it is processed into nutrient-rich soil amendment.
With many communities in Horizon West being in a homeowners association, having access to a service like O-Town Compost has the opportunity to make a big impact by diverting organic waste from landfills and creating valuable soil amendment.
