According to the U.S. EPA, the average American throws away 1.3 lbs (.6 Kg) of food scraps daily; 475 pounds per year. Food waste and yard trimming comprise 24% of the U.S. Municipal solid waste stream.

When food waste goes to landfills, the end product is methane, one of the most harmful greenhouse gases

North Augusta, with a grant through the SC Department of Health and Environmental Control, has Earth Machine compost bins for sale.  For more information the earth machine and how to order one today, click the link below!

Did you know residents are required to recycle electronics. In July 2011 South Carolina Legislation passed a law making it illegal for residents to place or discard electronics into a solid waste stream.
