Composting is a time-honored, worldwide practice as an inexpensive, effective means of enriching soil for crops and gardens. Over the past two decades, composting has become an increasingly common method for reducing the volume of organic materials – particularly yard waste – sent to landfills. In Europe, the entire organic portion of municipal solid waste (MSW) is often composted. Up until recently, that approach had been less common in the United States; however, as more states enact tougher landfill laws, diverting a higher percentage of organics found in MSW is attracting more interest.
