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.

Manure

Shit happens, as they say, and if you don't deal with it, it will breed flies and other pests. And there are several great ways to use it. Compost it, feed it to BSF or worms. You can even give an herbivore's poop to an animal like a pig - it's just like grass and they love it.
