Why should you choose No Waste - Compost?
1) It's Cheap
No Waste Compost is the most affordable compost pick-up for households. Our close proximity to our service areas and access to local community resources allows us to beat the prices of larger waste management companies.
2) It's Easy
Its incredibly easy! All you have to do is collect your food scraps and other compostables in the food-safe bucket we provide, place it curbside for pickup, and we will take care of the rest!
3) It Benefits Your Community
Not only are you supporting small businesses, you are also supporting local farms, and community gardens. Our commitment to providing useable compost to our network of farmers and independent composter allows everyone to share in the benefits of a compost operation
4) It Benefits the Environment
According to the EPA, the act of composting:
Enriches soil, helping retain moisture and suppress plant diseases and pests.
Reduces the need for chemical fertilizers.
Encourages the production of beneficial bacteria and fungi that break down organic matter to create humus, a rich nutrient-filled material.
Reduces methane emissions from landfills and lowers your carbon footprint.
5) It Will Soon Be Required
By 2020, all Vermont residents will be required to compost food scraps (Act 148). Without any funding for new infrastructure, the cost to compost is expected to fall directly on our communities.
Although Act 148 passed without funding, according to the ANR "$20 million is needed over the next 9 years to support organics processing infrastructure, and another $17 million is needed for trucks and carts to collect both recyclables and organics."
6) Get Ahead of the Game
We started two years early to help alleviate Vermont's transition to state-wide composting. Why wait to do the right thing? You can start helping your local community and the local environment with a simple new habit - composting!
