Curbside Compost Collection Information Session

The Mattapoisett Library hosts an information session with Black Earth Compost on Tuesday, August 9 at 6:00 pm at the library and via Zoom. Representatives from the company will tune in virtually to present information about their initiative in the town. Interested residents can attend in person or virtually.

            Massachusetts food scrap hauler and compost facility manager Black Earth Compost will present the benefits of curbside compost collection, how Mattapoisett can get this started in their town and ways the company can partner with the town to save money. Food scraps make up 30% of the waste stream and can be easily diverted by the town to make a nutrient rich compost safe for use in backyard gardens and local farms. Compost improves ecological and soil health and managing it locally creates a more resilient community. Come learn about their program, ask questions, and get involved.

This information session does not constitute an endorsement of Black Earth Compost; the library is providing a forum for citizens to ask questions about the proposed facility and operations.
