Approximately 20% to 25% of the solid waste disposed of each year in Montgomery County, Texas, is yard waste that could be recycled into compost. Composting breaks down grass clippings and other yard waste into a nutrient-rich organic material that can be used to augment garden soil. The two most popular options for composting are to create a pile or use a bin, but either area should measure at least 4 feet by 4 feet for best results.
