• Composting Guide

    In order to keep current with our Green Initiative, we are happy to announce the addition of our Aero-bin composting bins! These bins, located at The Woods at Latimer and Woodlawn Crossing are for the use of all Abodes residents. Why should you compost? This is why:

    Human beings produce incredibly large amounts of waste every year, and there is limited space in landfills to hold it all. As such, green processes like recycling and composting have one main objective: They reduce the total amount of solid waste each person produces. If you compost, you're reducing the amount of garbage being placed in landfills. Compost also produces a potent natural fertilizer you can use in your garden or houseplants that will have less detrimental effects on the environment than its synthetic variants.
