Backyard Composting

Have you tried backyard composting? Fruit and vegetable scraps, coffee grounds and coffee filters, eggshells, tea bags, nut shells, grass, leaves, and twigs become nutrient-rich soil amendment for your garden. Save money on compost, while saving space in your trash bags!

The District sells the New Age Composter, made entirely from recycled plastic:

  • 30 cubic feet ($25)

The Composter can be assembled in ten minutes without any tools. Sold to New Bedford and Dartmouth residents ONLY.



Please call (508) 763-5924 to arrange to pick up a composter. The District office is open from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. A composter can also be purchased on Saturdays 8:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. at the Crapo Hill Landfill located at 300 Samuel Barnet Blvd, New Bedford, MA 02745. Mask required. Cash or check only.
