Conserve and grow

Catch those kitchen scraps, compost that food waste, and create some eco-friendly black gold in your own backyard.

Langley Township annual Backyard Composter Truckload Sales Event added 120 composters to the local population, but you don’t have to wait till next year to join in. 

Composters are available year round at the Township’s Civic Facility, 20338-65th Ave., and the Operations Centre, 4700-224th St. Composters are $25 for Township residents (proof of residency is required).

“Composting is such a great way to help the environment, create a free and natural fertilizer, and reduce your household garbage,” said Tess White, Township solid waste coordinator. “In fact, nearly one-third of household garbage can be composted.”

White noted that backyard composting complements the Township’s Green Can program, as composters can be used for items such as raw food and paper towels, and the Green Can can be used for all other food scraps, including meat and bones.
