Food Waste Composting

Norwood DPW sells two types of compost bins - the Earth Machine for $20.00 and the Dual Composting Tumbler for $50. Since we offer composters at a deep discount we request that you fill out a Composting Pledge form so we can keep track of who's purchased the bins. Eventually you'll receive an online survey asking about your composting experience. Additionally you will receive a counter top scrap bucket to collect kitchen scraps. Public Works is located at 1 Lyman Place. Please stop by between the hours of 7am - 3pm to purchase a bin. Additionally, please click MaDEP Home Composting Tips to learn more about composting.
