City Launches Compost Pilot Program

October 11, 2021


The City is happy to announce the new Compost Pilot Program, which is now available to residents and businesses interested in composting their waste materials.

Composting is a sustainable method of disposal intended to reduce the amount of food waste being sent to landfills. All food waste collected will be taken to a certified facility to be composted. Site usage, tonnage collected, contamination issues, and cost will be monitored during the one year pilot program and a recommendation will be made in the fall of 2022 for the future of this program.

For more information about the program, including a list of acceptable materials, drop off locations, and more, visit the Compost Pilot Program page.

If you are a resident interested in signing up for the program, please click here.

If you are a business owner or qualified employee from the Central Business District interested in signing up for the program, please click here.

For questions, please contact the Zero Waste Coordinator at zerowaste@ferndalemi.gov.
