Composting

Each year, almost three thousand pounds of trash go to the landfill for each Louisville resident—but most household waste can be composted! It’s easy to do, and it saves tons of space in the landfill so less of our land has to be used just to hold garbage. Smaller landfills give off less polluting gases and reduce the amount of polluted water draining from landfills into nearby rivers and streams. 

Learn how to compost using the guide from Louisville Metro Public Works.
