Home composting is a practice that is both simple and easy to adopt in order to enhance organic matter in the kitchen and garden. Since materials are composted on site, composting helps to reduce landfills as well as reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

In order for your composting process to be successful, it must contain only small quantities of plant materials.  It is therefore advantageous to join the collection of organic materials in conjunction with home composting.

For a list of organic materials that can be composted you may consult the '' Handy Guide to Home Composting " on the City of Montreal's website.
