PUMPKINS and YARD WASTE: We see the largest volumes of food waste of the entire year the week following Thanksgiving.  Please do not put out pumpkins or yard waste the week following Thanksgiving, as we do not have space in the trucks. Put them out before or hold off until the following week. We accept one pumpkin per pick up placed on top of your bin.


Colder Temps:  Below freezing temps are here, which means your compost can freeze to your bin and be unable to empty.  You can prevent this by using certified compostable bioplastic bin liners, available for purchase in the online shop.  Paper bag liners will freeze to the bin.

Horse Manure

We accept horse manure at no charge at our Groton, Framingham, and Manchester-by-the-sea compost facilities. 

Haul it yourself or pickup service is available for a fee within a 20 mile radius from our site in Manchester-by-the-sea, MA.  For further distances we will subcontract a dumpster service to haul it to the site.
