Complete Guide To Composting

Compost for a Healthier Newburyport

Allies and Partners

Composting is one of the best ways to reduce our carbon footprint and positively impact climate change.   

“One of our most significant challenges for society and our community is disposing of the ever-increasing volume of waste of all forms. Organic waste from the production of foods, from our tables and kitchens adds to the weight of our trash and disposal costs. Composting reduces costs and positively impacts our carbon footprint as it reduces methane emissions and enhances soils, water retention and provides carbon sequestration”

- Molly Ettenborough, Recycling and Energy Manager, Newburyport.
