Staff Writer
Aledo Times Record

U of I Extension has four major sites dealing with composting. To make it easier for our users, we have created Composting Central - Resources for the Composting of Livestock Manure, Food Scraps and Yard Waste. Randy Fonner, Extension Specialist, Certified Livestock Manager Program, coordinated the project.

The site leads to in-depth discussions on the science of composting, why it is important to compost, how to build a compost pile, and materials needed for composting.

The new website is available at http://web.extension.illinois.edu/compostingcentral/

University of Illinois Extension provides equal opportunities in programs and employment. Extension programs and materials are research based and strive to meet the needs of people locally.
