Why Compost?

Organic waste comprises 30 percent of the household trash going into landfills and incinerators, where it has no chance to decompose and offers very little BTU value. Homeowners who compost not only extend the life of our landfills and reduce the cost of collecting household garbage, but also recycle the nutrients in organic waste to create a valuable soil amendment for their gardens.  Want to learn more about the event?  Check out these great videos to learn more about the Collingswood Green Festival and to learn more about composting https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bqDQD8cvO5Y

Collingswood is excited to host this event again. Backyard composting and the use of rain barrels are excellent strategies for homeowners to reduce wastewater runoff and reduce waste going to the landfill while improving the soil. We look forward to seeing you April 28th at the 10th Annual Collingswood Green Festival!

Why use a Rain Barrel?

There are several environmental benefits associated with rain barrels. Foremost, rain barrels reduce stormwater runoff, this is water that does not soak in to the ground and can transport many pollutants to our local waterways. By using harvested rainwater for watering lawns, gardens, potted plants and for washing off patio furniture and tools, rain barrels conserve water. From a gardening perspective, the natural nutrients in rain water make it far better than tap water, which has chlorine and fluoride in it. With a rain barrel, gardeners can minimize or eliminate their use of chemical fertilizers.
