We'd tried home composting in the past. However, the addition of kitchen waste always produced an unpleasant odor and attracted way too many "critters". We thought we were doing pretty good with general recycling which cut our curbside trash over 50%. We wondered would home composting really decrease our landfill amount that much more? Answer...YES!!! Our curbside trash is minimal! There are many weeks we don't even place our receptacle at the curb. Beadle and Spencer do a great job...consistent, friendly, the container is always spic 'n span clean, and my plants are loving the spring/fall compost. If you love your home and the earth it sits on, make the modest investment and give Compost Nashville a try.
