Recycling with Worms
Composting garbage made easy with a worm bin.
This fast-paced and humorous video shows how worms can be used by everyone to reduce garbage. A youthful host first explains the problems of garbage production and disposal, and then the basics of recycling and composting. She introduces the concept of the worm bin, and shows us how to build and operate a small classroom-size vermicomposter. Finally, we visit a large outdoor worm bin in use at a townhouse complex and also a 38-foot bin at a government building cafeteria that composts over nine tons of material a year.
