We have been composting now for three weeks. I’ve noticed during that time that the amount of trash we are throwing out has diminished by at least half. The amount of recyclable material is also down a little as some of the paper goods are compostable.
We have a 13 gallon waste bin in the kitchen. We used to fill this up between 2 and 3 times per week. We now are down to one! Another benefit is that the trash can doesn’t smell because no food waste is going inside. We also have a few small bags of cat litter waste but we can’t compost that. It’s gratifying to see less waste is going to the landfill based on our new composting project.
