When most people hear the word ‘compost’, they automatically think of a smelly pile of moldy food. However, when done correctly, composting does not smell bad and is a sanitary way to dispose of organic waste. There are many different ways to start composting and no matter what your restrictions may be, there is a composting method that will work for you. If you are interested in purchasing a composting bin, we currently have Earth Machine compost bins available for purchase for $46. Contact Hannah Lubbers, (513) 732-7894 x 4, for more details.
