Dear Compost Enthusiast,

As the free compost collection program ends on April 14, 2016 Black Earth Compost will begin to offer WEEKLY pick-up for a reasonable
price.  Based on current interest, the cost would be $49 for SIX MONTHS; but if we can sign up another 200 households, the cost will be only $42 for 6 MONTHS.
Current or new participants should contact Black Earth Compost at 978-290-4610 or  Please include your address and phone number in the e-mail.  Feel free to forward this information to anyone who might be interested. For further information go to
If you choose not to continue your participation, please sanitize your kitchen bucket and compost toter, and bring them to DPS at 5 Jefferson Avenue after April 15, 2016.  These containers will be re-distributed to new compost collection participants.
