Sustainable Eden Prairie is an ongoing effort focusing on education and implementation of sustainable practices to protect the environment and natural resources our community enjoys.
Building upon the success of the 20-40-15 initiative, the City is leading by example and providing a foundation for residents and businesses to carry out sustainable practices in four areas — energy, landscape, waste and water.
Composting at Home
Compost your food and yard waste to improve your soil.
Composting converts waste from your kitchen and yard into a nutrient-rich soil amendment or mulch. You can compost organic material, including fruit and vegetable peelings, grass clippings and leaves. Gardeners have used compost for centuries to supply essential nutrients for plant growth.
