So you think you have household recycling covered?
If you recycle with due diligence, your weekly contribution to a truck headed for the landfill is probably small. Especially if you already send putrescible waste – organic material such as leaves, branches, grass clippings and food scraps – back to nature.
Do you have a cat or a dog? Then you already know that their poop and litter can really add ballast to the weekly trash bag. Chances are good that this, ahem, organic material is a no-no even for composters.
