Grateful for Composting Options



Thank you, Iridian Casarez, for your article on what I would call commercial composting ("All Hands on Deck," July 21). I have had backyard composting since the late 1970s. However, as I get older, I may not be able to maintain that system that makes my yard healthy. Hopefully, there will be systems available for us to compost our home food waste. Now, I also understand why the Co-op invested in a composting system recently. I have just been taking things to the stores that must be commercially composted since my backyard compost does not get hot enough for those items — mostly their food containers.
