3 Home vs City Compost

Last week we received a note on our door saying that in a few weeks we will be receiving our green bin. This excites me greatly. We can compost so much more in the city system vs our home compost system (ie: meat). But if you have a city compost system do you still compost at home?


I can see the benefits in the winter time. No more shoveling a path to get to the composter...no more wet feet as I walk through a foot of snow. I guess I am going to have to figure out how much I need to be putting into our home composter to keep it going and put the rest into the city system.

If you have a city compost system let me know what you like about it and how you balance your home compost system if you have one.

  1. Oh wow! A City compost! That's AWESOME!!!


  2. They are starting to be very common up here. In fact I would say that our city is rolling ours out kind of late compared to other cities. Regardless I am excited to finally have the program in our neighbourhood.

    Do they not have them in the US?

  3. Wow, that is so cool! That's the first I have heard of such a system. I'm just excited that our city FINALLY went green last year and implemented a great recycling program.
