These days composting makes a lot of sense; fill a designated container with items that might otherwise go to a landfill and be rewarded with rich soil supplement for your garden. Composting is easy to do and is cheaper than buying new soil at the local hardware/gardening store.
For $10 or $15, you could be well on your way to creating nutrient-rich fertilizer from your trash. Items that can be composted include:
· Egg shells
· Coffee grinds & filters
· Grass clipping
· Shredded newspapers
