Separate trash recycling reduces waste. But what ca new do with leftovers from fruits, egg shells, and other organic trash? The answer: compost.
What is composting? It is the natural way to recycle organic waste and turn them into fertilizer. This practice is getting more and more popular, as it helps households get rid of organic waste. The end result of composting – the fertilizer – can be used for houseplants, or in the garden.
The composter is a container, where you can throw away all of the organic trash – fruit and vegetable leftovers, mowed grass, fallen leaves, wood ash and such. It is better though to avoid throwing bones, meat leftovers, milk products, or cigarette/coal ash in the composter.
The compost needs to be turned one to four times a month, so that it can be aerated, and the process made faster. Usually after 5 to 12 months we have a compost, which is ready to be used as fertilizer.
