Lee emphasized that although the environment may not always be on the top of everyone’s mind, saving money probably is. Sending less waste to the dump, and therefore lowering the amount spent on solid waste management saves taxpayers money.

Lee says that creating compost as a community can displace the need to purchase manure and fertilizer — or even be sold at a profit.
