Frequently Asked Questions

Check with your local municipality to see if they accept wipes that meet the requirements under ASTM D6400. If not, consider starting your own home compost. Composting at home is a great way to take your environmental impact into your own hands. Composting fruits, vegetables and other organic matter provides nutrients for soil in gardens and farms and keeps waste out of landfills. To get started composting at home you may want to consider purchasing a rotating composter with two chambers. That way, you can have your old compost break down in one chamber and add new material to the other. If you start to compost but have no place for the compost to go, get in touch with neighbors or growers who will likely be excited to use it. Trust us, people love good dirt. For more information on composting, please visit the EPA or USDA NRCS websites.
