The green residues, high in nitrogen, hidden with the dump with other waste, favour the creation of gas with greenhouse effect. The problems caused by these gases are universally recognized. Then it is about time that each of us does its share. Certain municipalities, cities or district are more daring than others and offer the collection of residues to their citizen.

Until this practice generalise, it's up to each of us to make our own compost! In addition, this compost of good quality is ideal to fertilize garden, flower-bed, shrubs as well as grass.
