Composting seems like a pain in the 🍑 but it's really not difficult once it becomes habit. 80 million tons of waste which goes into landfill every year is material that can be turned into compost. Food scraps, yard trimming and paper can all be composted. If you do it yourself you can use the compost to make your soil happy and nutrient rich. Some areas of the country will do it for you. In other parts it's illegal not to. If you live in Clayton you can throw your compost in with yard waste and the city will pick it up.
