Celebrate Earth Day every dayGetting Started with Composting!

Years ago it would have been crazy to think about adding a recycling bin next to your trash, now it’s second nature! It’s time to add a new bin to your kitchen – the composting bin. Compost bins are for all of your organic waste- food scraps, coffee grounds, garden materials, even paper! Instead of these materials going to a landfill to break down and release methane, these valuable resources can be turned into a nutrient rich soil to be used for gardening. So how do you get started? The City of Boston has a program called Project Oscar that has community bins around the city; the nearest one to Beacon Hill is in City Hall Plaza where you can drop off your compost whenever you want! Too far of a walk? Try one of the many commercial composting services that will pick up your compost right at your door like City Compost, Bootstrap Compost, and Black Earth Compost. It’s a small way to make a big difference!

Be on the lookout for more sustainable tips from our committees in the BHCA Community Corner!
