Georgia Composting Resources

When we let food scraps, yard trimmings, and other organic materials decompose in landfills, methane, a potent greenhouse gas, is released. When we compost these materials instead, the organic matter is broken down by microbes into nutrient-rich, carbon-sequestering fertilizer.

Here in Georgia, composting is a community affair, with operations throughout the state tracked by the Georgia Environmental Protection Division on this interactive map.
