Article Summary: 

The article discusses composting alternatives for condominium living to reduce methane emissions, a potent greenhouse gas, from organic food waste. Methane is produced during the decomposition of organic matter in landfills without oxygen. Composting offers an effective methane reduction strategy as it converts organic materials into nutrient-rich soil through natural decomposition. The article presents four composting methods suitable for condo residents: vermicomposting using worms, bokashi composting using microorganisms, countertop devices, and utilizing compost collection services like Compost Winnipeg. Composting not only reduces methane emissions but also improves soil structure and water-holding capacity, benefiting gardening and crop yields. Winnipeg's Organics Diversion Strategy aims to reduce methane creation in landfills. Condo residents are encouraged to consider composting as a collective effort to build condominium communities and practice environmental stewardship.
