With all the changes going on with composting in Anchorage, why not just keep it all in your back yard? If you have the space to compost in your back yard, there are retail outlets that can help you by providing some of the tools you’ll need. Alaska Mill & Feed is just one place where you’ll find tools. Alaska Mill & Feed offers at least three different styles of composters including tumblers, free standing models, and worm bins. It also carries compost buckets for collecting food scraps in the house (only compost food waste if bears are not a problem in your area and if you have enough other material to mix with it), compost starter to activate your pile, compost forks for turning your compost, biodegradable leaf bags for collecting your raw materials, and other products to make composting easy. You also can find compost tea, which is great for plants, as well as compost tea brewing kits so you can make your own.
