Home Composting

The Town has partnered with  Earth Machine (Norseman Plastics) to offer compost bins to residents at a discount.

Residents may pick up the compost bin at Public Works (with a 24 hour notice prior to pick up) for $40.00 cash, check or money order, no debit cards.

A family using an Earth Machine can divert over 500 lbs. of kitchen scraps and yard waste a year. Home composting with recycling and yard waste programs, can reduce your waste by up to 80%.
