Compost Bins are available!

According to the U.S. EPA, the average American throws away 1.3 lbs (.6 Kg) of food scraps daily; 475 pounds per year. Food waste and yard trimming comprise 24% of the U.S. Municipal solid waste stream.

When food waste goes to landfills, the end product is methane, one of the most harmful greenhouse gases

North Augusta, with a grant through the SC Department of Health and Environmental Control, has Earth Machine compost bins for sale.  For more information the earth machine and how to order one today, click the link below!
