Why is the County offering a Curbside Organics Composting Program, and why should I participate?

Collecting food scraps, food-soiled paper, and yard trimmings at the curb will help keep valuable materials that are not waste out of our landfill, reduce excessive methane greenhouse gas emissions, protect our environment and help Prince George’s County get closer to our zero waste goals. Composting also creates a nutrient-rich soil amendment that improves soil health and function.
