To create a compost pile simply take a plastic or wooden bin, and fill it with soil. Dump water onto the soil until is wet. From then on add your food scrapes, yard wastes, or other plant/food parts. Stir up the mixture every now and then to let oxygen in through out the pile. Also add water here and there to keep the compost pile wet. This will reduce your garbage and help a lot. Encourage your neighbors and friends to do the same!
