Curbside Composting Pick-Up Services
Similarly to trash and recycling pickup, residents in Ashland can sign up for private subscription food scrap waste curbside pick up services. Curbside composting subscriptions are a great way to reduce the amount of food waste going into your trash while also offering the convenience of having a vendor take the food scraps away while still receiving the finished compost product after.
Residents simply leave bins filled with food scraps by the curb once a week and have the waste picked up by a company which composts the food scraps, often at an industrial scale. Many curbside pickup vendors allow more food products to be composted such as meats and cheeses, which is challenging to do for many people conducting home composting activities.
Curbside composting subscriptions also allow residents with limited space the ability to compost.
