Composting 101

Join City Recycling Coordinator Kim O'Rourke the learn about the benefits of composting for your garden and for the environment to reduce waste going to landfills. Compost that is created from household food waste and yard debris can be used as fertilizer around the yard in vegetable gardens, flower beds or lawns. Compostable materials include fruit and vegetable scraps, egg shells, coffee grounds, leaves, grass clippings and garden clippings.

The City of Middletown is working with a company to sell composting bins, encouraging residents to reduce the amount of organic material going to waste disposal facilities.

To order a compost bin through the city, join us at Russell Library, or email kim.orourke@middletownct.gov or go to the public works page at www.middletownct.gov.
