Our new compost program is a convenient and affordable way to dispose of fruit, vegetable, and plant matter without sending it to the landfill. Buried organic waste not only occupies valuable landfill space, it also produces methane gas when it decomposes—one of the most potent contributors to global warming. Composting is a great way for you to divert materials from the landfill and also create rich soil for gardening. When you compost, the items that breakdown turn into carbon dioxide, which is an important element for our trees and plants, which turn it into oxygen for us to breathe. Show your commitment to waste diversion and the planet today by signing up for this exciting new service.
- Accepted items for compost: fruit and vegetable scraps, plant waste, coffee grounds/filters/tea bags, eggshells.
- Not accepted: liquids of any kind, proteins (poultry, beef, pork, etc.), dairy, fat trimmings, oils, baked goods, coffee pods, bio-plastics, glass or metal.
- Yard and garden waste diversion programs are also available. Please contact us for details.
