Composting & Recycling

CompostMichigan State University Extension supports composting and recycling as an environmentally sustainable practice for homes, farms, businesses, and industry. Composting and recycling are important steps taken to complete a product’s life cycle. Whether products are grown naturally or manufactured, compost is the easiest and least expensive solution to managing our organic waste; especially our food and yard residues. The cycles of decomposition are a part of our natural world, and is a key part to enriching the soil. Composting is simply where we control the decomposition process to speed it up. Recycling creates new products from old manufactured items made from glass, metals, plastics and other raw materials.  By recycling we contribute to a sustainable system that benefits our environment by reducing pressure for new raw materials.
