Food-Scraps-To-Compost Collection Survey

The City of Bristol is considering a partnership with Blue Earth Compost to bring a Food-Scraps-to-Compost curbside collection service to our town! There are many benefits to composting, including reducing the amount of household trash you accumulate, which keeps unnecessary waste out of our landfill and helps the environment. In addition, compost can be used to nourish your garden, houseplants, or lawn. 

We need input from Bristol residents in order to kickstart this program! Please fill out our Food-Scraps-To-Compost Survey to express your interest in this potential service. The survey is non-committal, and for informational purposes only. We need at least 100 interested residents to proceed.  

Here's how it would work: Blue Earth Compost will provide a four-gallon pail lined with a biodegradable bag. You fill the pail with food scraps, which will be emptied curbside weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly. When your pail is emptied, you will receive another biodegradable liner. In exchange, you are entitled to three (3) 50 pound bags of compost per year as part of the service. If you don't need compost for your home, your share will be donated to Hartford Public Schools. Bristol Public Works will provide an indoor two-gallon kitchen composter for FREE.
