Framingham Curbside Compost
Now preregistering residents for weekly pick up of organic waste. This includes home owners, condo owners, and renters.
We will be starting food scrap collection in Framingham and need 30 households to preregister within the next six months to begin. Preregister with the link below and you will be notified by email when we begin service. There is no financial commitment to preregister. Share this page with your friends and on social media to get this program started as soon as possible.
We drop off your new curbside bin and bags! When you need more bags, order online and we drop them off the next week. The 13 gallon animal proof curbside bin comes with wheels and a locking lid for $24, half the price of retail. Your food waste must be contained within a compostable bag. This keeps your bin clean and ensures all material is emptied. A paper grocery bag works well or you can purchase compostable bag liners for your curbside bin or kitchen counter top container through our web store.
WHAT TO COMPOST:
You can compost a lot more than your backyard pile… Meat, Dairy, Napkins, Paper Towels, Pizza Boxes. We do not accept yard waste, grass clippings, or plastic. Click on the image to enlarge or here for a detailed print version of what’s compostable.
TEXTILES PICK UP:
The EPA estimates that 90% of textiles get thrown in the trash. We will collect your used clothing or textiles for free. That includes all clothes, shoes, sheets, towels, and curtains. Please consider donating your best clothes first to a local thrift store. All clean textiles that would otherwise be thrown in the trash, we will gladly recycle.
Start at $99 for 6 months (only $3.80/week). When 400 Framingham households are enrolled or preregistered, the price will be reduced 40% to $59.99 for 6 months (only $2.31/week) for all. Preregister now to be notified when we begin compost collection in Framingham.
