Why Compost?

The Town of Bethlehem is excited to be offering this bulk composter sale, with educational support from Albany County Cooperative Extension. The goal of the program is to divert food scraps from the waste stream (up to 30% or more by weight is comprised of food scraps and compostable soiled paper and cardboard), and raise the awareness regarding the benefits of compost, which include improving or maintaining high quality soil, growing healthy plants, reducing the use of fertilizer and pesticides, improving water quality and protecting the environment. By adding compost you can conserve water and help improve soil to help hold water in the root zone. Want to learn more? Check out this great video:

“Composting substantially reduces landfill waste, enriches the soil, holds soil moisture (saving water by 25-30%!), helps prevent erosion, suppresses weed growth, reduces the need for chemical fertilizers, and offers a variety of other benefits. Healthy soils grow healthy food and plants!”
