Kudos to the N.C. State students who have made such a success of their pizza-box composting initiative (March 20 news story). Others who want to make a similar investment in the environment have a terrific local option: Compost Now (started several years ago, incidentally, by former N.C. State students) is a local company that will make weekly pick-ups of compostable materials from our homes. They take kitchen scraps, bits of paper, ailing house plants, pizza boxes and much more. My family’s weekly trash has been reduced to one bag a week. An additional benefit for gardeners is that we get rich, composted soil in return. Check it out.
