Compost Contamination

Notice:  The Peacham Transfer Station has received its first official warning regarding compost contamination.  After three consecutive warnings, compost fees are subject to increase.  Last week alone every bin dumped had some form of contamination, plu stickers all the way to full trash bags. The single largest problem found throughout the month is people throwing compost-filled ziploc bags into the bins.  Once they freeze into the block they are nearly impossible to get out.  Also as a note, single-use coffee/tea cups (keurig cups style) are not accepted, whether they say compostable or not. They simply do not compost.  For composting guidelines, please visit the NEKWMD website.
