There are several ways to compost and it’s important to figure out which way will work best for you and your family. Curbside Compost is a local service that will pick up your compost right from your door. Community Compost is a local compost drop off program offered by the Town of Pound Ridge Conservation Board.
Both of these programs offer commercial composting services which allow for composting of many more items than a backyard compost system such as meat, fish and dairy, making your compost efforts even more effective by reducing your trash significantly. See the list of What I Can Compost? through these programs. You can also choose one of these programs and still have a backyard composting bin so you can create your own compost at home to use in your yard. Once you’ve decided which way you are going to compost, join us by showing your ready to Commit to Compost and make a donation to get our exclusive Earth Day Everyday Countertop Compost Bin.
