Composting is nature’s way of recycling as well as a satisfying way to turn your food scraps and yard trimmings into a nutrient-rich soil conditioner.
Composting of food and yard waste will not only extend the life of our regional landfill, but its use will replenish nutrients in our topsoil which can get depleted over time.
Residents have two options for composting: (1) Composting at home and (2) using a local composting service. To learn more about composting at home, click here.
For residents who choose not to or are unable to do backyard composting, Nordic Waste Services is a new waste management company offering residential composting services similar to Upper Valley Compost, which closed down in the fall of 2018. They offer curbside pickup and drop-off at the three local Coop stores for a monthly fee.
- Drop Off: $20/month
- Curbside Pickup: $25/month
