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 our Nashua community!

Grow Nashua now offers a local food scrap collection service that is creating soil, green energy, and local jobs all while  diverting food waste from the Four Hills Landfill every day! Let us compost your food scraps and organic materials while simultaneously supporting our non-profit outreach in Nashua's inner city 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 and other matter (see full list) in a container.

  • It’s local.  Your waste is diverted from our Nashua's landfill, giving it more time to become a landFULL and reducing our local greenhouse gas emission.

  • 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 non-profit's 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 reused. 

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

  • Instead we will capture 100% of the methane gases from your food scraps turning them into electricity, heat, and fertilizer for the farm. 

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