Compost supplies organic matter to soil, attracts earthworms, stimulates beneficial soil microorganisms, and increases both soil nutrient and water retention capacities. Homeowners save money by using compost to replace soil amendments like peat moss; have overall healthier soil with less need for fertilizer or pesticide and save tax dollars by reducing municipal costs for curb side pick up and drop-off sites for yard materials.


To learn how to start or improve your composting success visit the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources for compost related tips and educational materials.
