Composting is an excellent way to get rid of your organic waste. You could get a pig and just have him or her eat it, but not everyone wants livestock in their yard. What’s more, pigs kind of smell and it’s very sad when you have to send them to the abattoir to become bacon. A compost bin turns your apple cores and leftover food into nutrient-rich fertilizer for your garden or indoor plants. You can just fence off a section of your garden, but this is very difficult to contain or manage – soon, the fertilizer will have fertilized a bunch of weeds, and instead of a compost pile you’ll just have a weedy hill. So get a compost bin.
