Nutrients (Fertilizer and Yard Waste)
- Nutrients are compounds that stimulate plant growth, like nitrogen and phosphorus. They are beneficial and necessary, but in high concentrations can become an environmental threat.
- Nutrients cause algae blooms. When the algae dies off, it sinks and decomposes in a process that removes oxygen, killing fish and plant life (eutrophication).
