(and should)

Composting is far more than just free fertilizer for the garden. It reduces waste, closes the nutrient cycle, and prevents air pollution.

Composting can remove 20-50% from your household waste stream, reducing the burden on landfills.

An efficient compost pile is a careful balance of dry or brown things that contain carbon (like leaves, straw, or paper) and wet or green things that contain nitrogen (like food  scraps or rabbit droppings).

Everything will break  down into dark, crumbly humus that you can sprinkle around your trees, garden or houseplants to help them grow.

If we composted food and other organic waste instead of throwing it away, we'd need fewer landfills, and they wouldn't emit methane. Food does not belong in landfills.
