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

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.
