Compost Your Kitchen Waste

Many people just let the in-sink garbage disposal take care of their food waste. Convenient though that may be, the practice overburdens water-treatment facilities with viscous sludge, which in turn requires additional water to treat. Instead, do your own treatment: Collect your organic kitchen waste in a bin or bucket. When it's full, tote it to a backyard compost pile, or start a compost-exchange program with your neighbors.
