WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind.
— If you’ve ever driven across a state, you know the frustration of having to lug an entire trailer full of garbage to dump in the nearest dumpster.
But what if you’re not sure what to do with it?
There are tons of ways to make composting your own compostable waste, including using water from a garden hose, using a compostable container, making your own mulch, or even composting on your own.
But there are some tips for making the best of it.1.
Get a composting bin to take your waste in and get it out2.
Start with what you haveMost composting bins are fairly simple to use.
You can use a regular garbage can or you can buy a bin that is specifically made for composting.
You might be able to get away with only using a garbage can if you don’t want to use it to hold a lot of waste, but if you have a lot to sort out, you should make a plan to have a bin ready for the first use.3.
Choose the right type of containerTo start, you need to make sure you have what you’re looking for when it comes to the kind of container you choose.
The best composting containers will be ones that are made to be used for compost.
The bigger the can, the more durable it will be, so choose the one that will hold as much compost as you can.
The smaller the can the less likely you will be able get away from it.
The larger the can you’ll be using it to store more material.4.
Choose a good composting areaWhen you choose the type of composting space you’re going to use for your compost, make sure it has the right dimensions.
Some composting areas are a bit larger than others, so make sure that the composting will be available at the right spot.
If you plan to place your compost in a small area, you can make sure your container is big enough to hold up to the volume of compost you plan on using.
Some people prefer to set up their composting container in a tree trunk or a corner, but some composting facilities prefer that you make your container in an area that will get maximum sun exposure.5.
Start smallIf you’re planning on keeping the compost in your bin for the long term, it’s a good idea to start small.
Just be sure that you can safely store the compost that you’ll need to use in the bin.
If it’s something you can’t do right away, you’ll have to put it in a compost bin that you clean up in the morning.6.
Pick out a good containerThe size of your compost bin needs to be determined based on the material you’re choosing.
Some types of materials are better for compost than others.
Some bins can hold up much more material than others and some compost bins have a built-in shelf that can hold items that are not easily separated from each other.
If you plan for a large composting site, you may want to consider a bigger bin that can handle more waste and compost.
If the bin you decide on is smaller, you could try making the compost a part of the roof of your home.7.
Choose your composting materialYour composting materials are your friend, and there are a lot you can use them for.
A few different types of compost are used for different types or kinds of waste.
For example, some types of waste are better suited for compostable materials than others because they require different levels of heat and pressure to break down.
For some types, like cardboard and glass, it may be better to store the material in a container that can be filled with water or put in a plastic bag to get it to decompose faster.
The other composting products that can break down into different types are paper, cardboard, and even a few other materials.8.
Choose where you’ll store your compostIf you decide to use your compost for your own waste, you might want to make it a priority to store it in an airtight container or place it in one of the bins that are marked for recycling.
You could also consider having the compost stored in a cool, dry place.
You might also want to take some precautions to protect your compost when you use it for your home composting needs.
Keep it away from kids, pets, and other people who might be in the area.
Make sure it’s not too hot or too cold, and you also might want not to place it near water or heat sources.
If any of these precautions don’t work, make a few changes to your compost.
