The TNRD and the Village of Ashcroft encourage residents to compost organic waste rather than send it off to the landfill in your household garbage. 30% of houshold waste is organic matter that can be composted. Compost is a valueable resource used to enrich the soil and can be created in your own backyard! Save money by creating your own compost rather than buying composted manure - by doing so you are also saving the planet. Check out this link
for more details to get you started.Recycling Facilities
