EDCO promotes recycling…Naturally! And what could be more natural than to recycle yard waste in a backyard composting bin or reduce waste by “grasscycling” lawn trimmings?

Compost-amended soil provides a more nurturing medium for plants therefore creating healthier landscaping that will be more resistant to disease and infestation.
