Composting

Composting can divert 40% of waste heading to the landfill. 

We’re here to help all Manitobans reduce their food waste. We work with homes, schools and communities to learn more about composting and how to make it practical and possible for everyone!

Our Composting team is here to offer tips to get you started, deliver presentations, and share expert knowledge.

Why Compost?

It’s easy! Way easier than you think.

It’s worth it! Save money, water and garbage going to the landfill.

It can make a difference! Reduce greenhouse gases and return those nutrients to your soil.
