As Ramsey and Washington counties move toward residential collection of food scraps, Ramsey/Washington Recycling & Energy (R&E) is working to ensure that the compost produced from those food scraps can benefit communities. Compost derived from food scraps can benefit gardening and other projects by adding nutrients to soil, encouraging healthy plant growth, increasing moisture retention while improving drainage and much more.
