Our Compost Service

Pong is released on Atari, Saturday Night Live is premiering, people are listening to music on their Walkman..... and they are throwing their soda cans in the trash!

The good new is that recycling has increased 400% since the 70’s and our children have grown up knowing it as the only way!

 

Food Waste however has gone in the opposite direction and makes up 21% of our trash! 

 

It is easy in modern times to feel like we can’t have a local impact on something as big as greenhouse gas because... 

”What can one person do?” 

The Impact You Can Make

Today you do have the opportunity to make a local impact for your community!

Grow Nashua now offers a local food scrap collection service to lower waste in our landfill and return nutrients back to the soil.  We will compost your food scraps and organic materials while simultaneously using the compost created to support our local community and school gardens. 

 

An easy step in the right direction for our environment and community!

How it works?

You sign up below. We drop a bucket off at your doorstep.

We collect the contents of your bucket once a week and leave you with a fresh bucket.

In the spring you receive a bag of compost back or donate it to a school of your choice.

You are happy because you have made an impact in your community!

Why compost with us?

  • It’s easy.  Just throw your food scraps in a container.

  • It’s local.  Your compost goes back into our local community and school gardens.

  • It creates Nashua jobs. As more clients sign up, we create green jobs for our community members.

  • It’s automated.  Monthly payments are automatic.

  • It's impactful.  Every dollar is reinvested in our local food movement to increase food access, nutrition education, and advocacy for our community.

  • Working together, we can all contribute more effectively to the evolution of a resilient local food system, one that that nurtures the health of people, the local economy, and the planet at large. 

Crumb trail to why composting is important…

  • 1/5th of the total trash we throw away is food scrap.

  • Right now only 5% of that food waste is currently being recycled. 

  • Leaving the other 95% to be burned or buried releasing greenhouse methane gas into our air.

  • Instead we will recycle your food scraps to create nutrient filled material that will be returned to the Earth, so our growers can replenish soils and grow new nutrient dense vegetables.

  • At our core, we understand the importance of not wasting and that doing so unnecessarily has consequences.
