*We have meet 500 households and free bags are no longer available from the city for households that sign up for a year of service. Starter Kits are still available.
THE BIN: Pilot participants can continue to use their green 13 gallon curbside bin provided by the town of Natick. If you are new to composting the town has compost starter kits available for free when you sign up for a year of service. Starter kits, which include a 13 gallon curbside bin and kitchen counter top bin are only available to residents who are new to curbside composting and will be delivered by the Department of Public Works.
We require your compost be contained within bags inside your bin, either with a paper bag or compostable bag to keep bins clean and empty completely. Compostable bags that fit the 13 gallon bin and kitchen counter top container bags can be purchased through our web store and will be dropped of when we pick up your compost. Compostable bags are also available at cost, courtesy of the town, at Tilly and Salvy’s Bacon St. Farm.
