Here’s a great idea for anyone who has been interested in reducing their household waste through composting (the process of transforming organic kitchen waste into rich earth soil).

Household waste that can be composted currently accounts for 30% of all waste that ends up in land fills or incinerators.

Compost Montreal is an organization that collects your compost for $5.00 a week and delivers it to a composting site managed by the Montreal Department of Parks and Horticulture. You get your very own compost bucket, and Compost Montreal will collect it from your front porch. This organization also provides members with finished compost in the spring so you can reap what you toss!

If you’re new to composting and aren’t sure how it works, or how it will smell in your house, they will teach you everything you need to know.

Compost Montreal currently serves the following communities: St. Henri, the Plateau, N.D.G., Outremont, Mile-End, Rosemont, and Hochelaga-Maisonneuve.
