You can put everything from meat and fish scraps to vegetable trimmings to breads, rice, and pastas to coffee grounds, filters and napkins in your bucket. We Compost It! collects and transform your food scraps into high-quality compost, which will be used to enhance local soils. We Compost It! donates compost to local schools each year for use on school yard gardening projects.
Saco Schools have been utilizing the We Compost It! program for over a year, and now downtown residents can join in the fun. Saco DPW will be working with We Compost It! to help ensure the program's success, and hope to see the service area expanded as participation grows. If you're outside the service area, there are still lots of ways to help Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle your waste. One person's waste is another person's treasure! The City will be looking to provide more alternative waste disposal opportunities for residents in the coming year. Look for updates to the City website and Saco DPW Facebook page to help you stay aware and stay active when it comes to finding ways to help our environment and our sustainability as a community.
