Their are a lot of pros to composting and also a few cons. Some of the pros is it will keep 50-70 percent of garden waste out of landfills and this will help to have less pollution in our atmosphere. Another pro of composting is that it can remediate and revitalise soil that has been contaminated by hazardous waste, and can remove oil and heavy metals from storm water runoff. Perhaps composting's greatest advantage is that anyone can do it. Outdoor composting bins are readily available or can easily and economically be made at home from scrap wood or old garbage cans. But their is some negatives like if you can't follow the heath and safety outlines. For example, never add meat or bone scraps, fatty foods, like oils, cheese and whole eggs, to compost. The pile will smell bad and attract unwanted pests like files and rodents. Some advise against using manure in composting, especially if finished compost will be used to grow vegetables, as it can contain bacteria that cause food borne illnesses, such as Escherichia Coli. I think that the positives far out way the negatives because all the negatives will only affect you if you are not careful. So I think that all people should be composting their waste so way can have less pollution and less space wasted up by landfills.
