One third of the average household’s waste is compostable kitchen scraps and yard waste. Composting turns this organic material into a valuable soil conditioner that will improve the health of your garden and yard. Composting is the single best thing most residents can do to reduce waste. Half of all County households are already doing it.

The County of Peterborough offers composters at the 310 Armour Rd Office for a subsidized rate. We are currently stocking two models of composters and the new digester; give us a call at 705-775-2737 for more details.

Ecology Park (located beside Peterborough Utilities in East City) also sells composters and compost canes.

Peterborough Green-Up also sells compost supplies as well as hosts compost workshops including the indoor option, vermicomposting. Click here for more information.
