New Location to Drop Off Compost in Brattleboro

Saturday August 20th, Brattleboro Residents were able to bring their compost to a new drop-off location for the first time. Now residents can collect compost that they otherwise wouldn’t be able to and drop it off outside of WSWMD’s business hours at a location that is more convenient to many residents.

The Fairground Road recycling station now has a Project COW compost bin that will be open two days a week.

The bin will be open with  volunteers helping people compost Wednesdays between 5 & 7 PM, and Saturdays from 9 to noon.

Come by and start composting!
