Fall into community composting. This is a great back-to-school activity for school or at home.
What You'll Need:
- Garbage bags
After you rake and bag your leaves, it's time to pick up the telephone.
Step 1: Call your local city government office and ask if they have a community compost location.
Step 2: If they do, talk mom and dad into loading the leaves into your family car instead of the trash collection barrel.
Step 3: Bring your compost over to the community location and leave it there -- allowing nature to break down the organic material and keep trash landfills free for other disposables.
Help the ducks get ready for winter too. See the next page for more.
