The Community Compost Program is an initiative offered by Winton Mfg. Compost Works. With this program, members can drop off household food waste at drop-off locations. Winton’s state-of-the-art commercial composting facility will turn your food and yard waste into local, high-quality, nutritious compost that will be resold within the community.
To become a member, go to the Winton Mfg. Compost Works website and click on the orange 'Learn More & Sign Up' button.
As a new member, you will get a sealing 5-gallon bucket to collect your food scraps in.
Take your bucket to one of Winton's drop-off locations. Its contents will be taken up to Winton Mfg. Compost Works to be composted.
Save your dollars by diverting food waste that would otherwise go to the landfill, and giving it the opportunity to be recycled into a new resource - compost!
By choosing to participate in this program you are supporting Winton Mfg. Compost Works and Waste Loop. Your locally spent dollars help grow the community and ‘close the loop’ closer to home.
Your trash that is not compostable and still destined for the landfill will be less smelly. No more dripping trash filled with moldy food means the chore of taking the trash out won’t be as gross!
Methane Gas is a greenhouse gas that is released into the atmosphere when food decomposes in a landfill. This is because it isn’t given the proper environment and attention to turn it into a safe decomposed soil amendment. Methane Gas is 80 times more potent than Carbon Dioxide, making it a lead contributor to climate change according to the EPA.
