I was asked yesterday by a new customer what can be done in Carstairs with Grass clippings. Carstairs offers a community composter at the recycling center in the industrial park. The following information is taken from the Carstairs website:
‘The Town of Carstairs is committed to municipal sustainability and promotes safe and environmentally sound practices throughout the community. That includes promoting the value of composting.’
So, what is compost? Compost is made up of organic matter, microbes and nutrients. These can be used to condition and fertilize flower beds and vegetable gardens. This is just the tip of the iceberg. For more on composting, click the links provided here.

In addition, the Town of Carstairs offers to its residents a composter free of charge, per civic address. Contact the Community Services Department for information. Working together for sustainability!
