If you have a backyard, consider building a compost heap for your food waste.
To build a compost pile…
1) Put leaves and grass trimmings in a bin or pile.
2) Dampen the pile with a little bit of water.
3) Turn the pile once per month.
4) Add food waste (vegetable and fruit scraps, coffee grounds, etc.) daily and bury them in the pile. Continue to add water so the pile stays damp.
5) In 12 months, the bottom of the pile will turn into rich compost.
