Of course you can recycle a lot of that stuff but what pains me the most about throwing out the trash is all the organic waste going in among the non-recyclables. Because of the way landfills are set up, that organic waste will most likely never have the ability to break down into what ultimately becomes nutrient-rich soil.
Deep thoughts for a Wednesday, huh?
Way back before we moved to Boston I started doing research for composting in our loft. But then we packed up and moved across the country and I lost my motivation to try doing it in our rented apartment. Now that we are moving back home to a place I know we'll be living for the foreseeable future, my desire to properly dispose of our organic waste has been rekindled.
And I imagine I'll have a few stories to tell and photos to post after I receive my first box of 1,000 composting worms!
Any tips for composting in small spaces? We do have a patio that might work for an outdoor composting bin. Or maybe I'll just get all of the neighbors in our building to chip in for a big composter!
