Curbside Composting

First Windrow

First windrow started consisting of shrimp shells, material supplied by residents, and wood shavings. We need a lot of material for our program. Residents of Subregion 4 please sign up for our compost program as outlined below.



Curbside Composting Is Here

Curbside composting began September 27, 2016 for households only in sub-region 4 ( Eddie's Cove West, Port au Choix, Port Saunders, Hawke's Bay and River of Ponds). Residents are able to separate organic waste from their regular household garbage before placing it at the curb or roadside for collection.Registered participants receive a FREE 45 litre bin or a 23 litre bin depending on the size of your household and the amount of organic waste you generate. Once the organic waste has been composted, participants in the program will be invited to use the FREE finished compost in their home gardens. We’ll let residents know when it’s ready for use! This program will help us explore how we might be able to collect and compost organic waste from all households on the Northern Peninsula in the future.



Getting Started

1. Register by email to info.nprsb@aibn.com; by phone 709-454-3110 or at sub-region 4 landfill site. 2. Pick up your bin at the sub-region 4 landfill during regular business hours (Hawkes Bay residents can also register and pick up bins at the Town Council Office). Note: to receive your bin, you will be required to show identification that states your name and address. 3. Start sorting your organic waste the week prior to your first collection day. You will receive a sorting guide when you pick up your bin. 4. Place your bin at the curb on your regularly scheduled waste collection day. Weekly collection of organic waste will continue on regularly scheduled waste collection days.


3 Steps To Curbside Composting

STEP 1: LINE YOUR BIN - Start by lining your bin with newpapers, flyers, boxboard or cardboard. This will make it easy to keep your bin clean. STEP 2: COLLECT ORGANICS - Add organic waste to your bin. You may also choose to keep a smaller container on your kitchen counter and transfer the waste to the larger bin when full. STEP 3: PLACE AT THE CURB - Place your bin at the curb on your regularly scheduled collection day.


What Goes In Your Bin?

meat • solid dairy products • fish • poultry • bones • table scraps • fruit • vegetables • baked goods • pasta • rice • fats and sauces • eggs and eggshells • tea bags • coffee grounds and filters • dust • leaves • houseplant clippings • nuts and nutshells • cooled ashes from wood burning fireplace • paper towel and toilet paper rolls • egg cartons

NO LIQUIDS, ICE CREAM, OILS.
NO PET WASTE.



Why Compost?

It may be surprising to learn that more than one third of the waste we throw away every day is organic waste – that’s waste that will break down naturally when composted. Composting close to home has many benefits to our community and the environment:

•  Reduces waste sent to landfills
•  Reduces the cost to collect and transport waste
•  Reduces pollution and greenhouse gas emissions
•  Reduces the need for chemical fertilizers and pesticides

And composting turns organic waste into a rich, natural fertilizer that returns valuable nutrients back into the soil promoting the growth of healthy plants.
