WASTE

There are things that you, as an individual, can do to prevent the overwhelming problem of garbage. By avoiding waste and conserving resources, composting all organic matter, producing fuel with some organic matter, reusing and recycling non-organic matter, your waste disposal needs will be very small.

Integrating waste systems, reusing trash, and avoiding waste in the first place will help limit the amount of trash your household produces. The less you have to throw away, the better your place is doing.

Organic

Organic

Organic waste should never be thrown away in the trash. It has too many uses. All manure can be composted or fed to worms or Black Soldier Flies. Most kitchen scraps can be fed to animals like pigs or poultry. Paper and any other waste can be composted. The true sign of how efficient your homestead is is how much trash it produces.

Waste water need not be thrown away. The grey water from our sink and shower feed an indoor garden that never stops producing. Don't even waste your pee if you can help it - the trees will thank you. For more on waste water, see our water section HERE.
