Organics Recycling: Good for the environment

Marin residents can drop off yard debris at West Marin Compost to avoid landfilling. Organic matter in landfills creates methane, a potent greenhouse gas. As compost or mulch it is a valuable, much needed soil amendment that creates healthy soils:

  • Improve soil structure
  • Conserve water
  • Reduce erosion
  • Increase CEC (Cation Exchange Capacity)
  • Optimized nutrient management
  • Sequester carbon (carbon farming/gardening)

Nicasio Blend is Organic. More to follow soon.

Reuse your vegetable scraps at home and recycle. Take a walk through the West Marin Compost site to learn more about organics recycling.
