What to do with Garden and Kitchen Wastes

Kitchen and garden wastes are mostly compostables, meaning we could let it dry out in the pits, and make fertilizers out of them.

Wastes in the garden are usually dried leaves and extracted plants, or animal manure *poopoo*. These should be composted or buried. If you cant, just make sure you place them in tightly-tied bags.

Kitchen wastes, on the other hand, are left over food, or fruit and vegetable peelings, egg and seafood shells, or fishbones. You could place them in sealsed containers and then ask pig feeders to collect your food wastes, or you could dry them and compost them like garden wastes.

Just a note, plastic and paper bags are not food wastes!!!

    Hey! Thanks for the great info about residuals. I always seperate my trash to do my part to lower my consumption.

    I was browsing through a bunch of green websites and blogs and I came across yours and found it very interesting. There are a bunch of others I like too, like the daily green, ecorazzi and earthlab.com. I especially like EarthLab.com’s carbon calculator (http://www.earthlab.com/signupprofile/). I find it really easy to use (it doesn’t make me feel guilty after I take it).

    Are there any others you would recommend? Can you drop me a link to your favorites (let me know if they are the same as mine).
