What is Composting?
Composting is the process of decomposing organic materials, such as food scraps, yard waste, and other biodegradable materials, into a nutrient-rich soil amendment called compost. It is a natural way to recycle organic waste and create a valuable product that can be used to prove soil health and fertility. Composting involves providing the right conditions for microorganisms, such as bacteria and fungi, to break down the organic matter into a stable and nutrient-rich material. 

This process helps reduce the amount of waste sent to landfills, reduces greenhouse gas emissions, and promotes sustainable gardening and agriculture practices. Compost can be used in gardens, lawns, and potted plants to enrich the soil, retain moisture, and provide essential nutrients for plant growth. 

Composting in the Towns of Bladensburg and Edmonston
The Towns of Bladensburg and Edmonston have joined forces with Eco City Farms and Compost Crew to bring the benefits of composting to our communities. Through this partnership, we are working towards creating a more sustainable and environmentally-friendly future. Together, we are taking a proactive step towards building greener and healthier communities. 

How to get started:
Throughout the week, you can conveniently dispose of your food scraps by placing them in the Compost Crew bin provided to you. Simply leave the bin at the curb the night before pick-up, and Compost Crew will collect your food scraps on a weekly basis. They will then process these scraps into nutrient-rich soil at their Compost Outpost located at Eco City Farms.
You can include a wide range of food items in the compost, including fruits, peels, seeds, shellfish, meat, bones, coffee grounds, egg shells, rotten food, freezer-burned food, and processed food.
