Compost

Why Compost?

Did you know that up to 30% of commercial garbage is composed of food and compostable material?

You can reduce that waste with Food+Compostables Collection. Instead of sending food scraps and food-soiled paper products to the landfill, Food + Compostables Collection turns them into compost. And composting may save you money!

Get free on-site assistance

A visit from a Waste Management Recycling Specialist can help identify compostable materials in your garbage, and assist you in setting up your collection system. You can request a site visit by email or call 1 800 592-9995.
