These publications and other valuable information on composting are available here: Innovative Uses of Compost: Bioremediation and Pollution Prevention
Each year agricultural effluents, industrial residues, and industrial accidents contaminate surface waters, soils, air, streams, and reservoirs. A new compost technology, known as compost bioremediation, is currently being used to restore contaminated soils, manage stormwater, control odors, and degrade volatile organic compounds.

Compost technology is a valuable tool already being used to increase yields by farmers interested in sustainable agriculture. Now, professional growers are discovering that compost-enriched soil can also help suppress diseases and ward off pests. These beneficial uses of compost can help growers save money, reduce their use of pesticides, and conserve natural resources. In the poultry industry, composting has also become a cost-effective method of mortality management. It destroys disease organisms and creates a nutrient-rich product that can be used or sold.

Why Compost?
Recycling the organic waste of a household into compost allows us to return badly needed organic matter to the soil. In this way, we participate in nature's cycle, and cut down on garbage going into burgeoning landfills.
Why Compost With Worms?
Worm composting is a method for recycling food waste into a rich, dark, earth-smelling soil conditioner. The great advantage of worm composting is that this can be done indoors and outdoors, thus allowing year round composting. It also provides apartment dwellers with a means of composting. In a nutshell, worm compost is made in a container filled with moistened bedding and redworms. Add your food waste for a period of time, and the worms and micro-organisms will eventually convert the entire contents into rich compost. The following information is based on the experiences of a network of worm composters linked to City Farmer, Vancouver, and the excellent and practical book: Worms Eat My Garbage by Mary Appelhof.

Composting: Getting down to paydirt
Composting is easy. You don't need any special knowledge or equipment, and it takes only a little extra effort to collect your wastes and establish an active compost pile. Once you've got it going, it just about takes care of itself.
How composting works:
In nature, organic wastes are broken down through a combination of biological and chemical processes. Biological agents like worms, insects, fungi, bacteria and other micro-organisms "chew up" the materials, which are further transformed by oxidation (exposure to air), reduction and hydrolysis (exposure to water).
Composting recipe:
For successful composting, you need:

Composting converts waste, leaves, kitchen scraps and garden wastes, into a valuable product which, when used in the garden, results in healthier plant growth when added to garden soil. Composting can also help solve our society's solid waste disposal problem. Food and yard waste comprise over 30% of our solid wastes nationwide. This slideshow will introduce you to five basic aspects of home composting: the organisms that are involved in the composting process; manageable components in the composting process; types of materials that can be composted; home composting systems; and uses of compost.
I. Organisms Involved in the Compost Process
Decomposition is a natural part of the nutrient cycle of living things. Composting is simply human intervention to enhance and accelerate the decay process Composting is a microbiological process. Many organisms have evolved to use decaying matter as their food source. Bacteria are among the simplest and most common organisms. Single-celled and microscopic, they are found almost everywhere in the environment. Although they are too small for us to see, they are responsible for most decomposition.

Brought to you by JEONET What is composting?
  • Composting is the controlled breakdown of biodegradable yard and kitchen wastes.
  • Compost is generally dark in color, resembles topsoil, and makes a useful soil conditioner.
  • Success in composting depends upon sufficient moisture and oxygen as well as proper amounts of carbon and nitrogen.
Recommended Compostable Materials
  • Yard Wastes: leaves, grass clippings, trees, plan/shrub trimmings, wood chips/sawdust, garden trimmings
  • Kitchen Wastes: coffee grounds, tea bags, raw vegetable scraps, fruit skins/cores/rinds, corn husks
Materials that should not be composted According to the Iowa City Code, the following materials are not allowed in compost piles. These materials easily attract animals and emit odors and should be avoided: Meat, Bones, Fats, Grease, Oils, Dairy Products, and Raw manure. Choosing a container To prevent materials from being blown away, a container or enclosure of some sort must be used. For example:

Municipal Solid Waste Recent Additions Contact Us Print Version Search: EPA Home Wastes Municipal Solid Waste Home ... MSW Topics
Overview Composting is the controlled decomposition of organic materials, such as leaves, grass, and food scraps, by microorganisms. The result of this decomposition process is compost, a crumbly, earthy-smelling, soil-like material. Yard trimmings and food scraps make up about 25 percent of the waste U.S. households generate, so composting can greatly reduce the amount of waste that ends up in landfills or incinerators. What to Put in the Mix These are some items that can be put in a composting bin. Some food products should not be included because they can attract pests or compromise the quality of the compost. This list is not meant to be all inclusive Materials to Include
  • Fruit and vegetable
    Egg shells
    Coffee grounds
    with filters
    Tea bags
    Fireplace ash
    Yard clippings
    Vacuum cleaner lint Wool and cotton rags Sawdust Nonrecyclable paper
Materials to Exclude
  • Meats Dairy foods Fats Oils (including peanut butter and mayonnaise) Grease Pet excrement Fish scraps Diseased plants
