Composting is a natural process by which grass clippings, yard waste and even kitchen scraps that are gathered break down or decompose to form a rich soil-like substance to fertilize or condition soil.
The Middlesex County Division of Solid Waste Management subsidizes the sale of compost bins to County residents.
Bins may be purchased on
Wednesdays from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and on Fridays from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. (noon)
at the Middlesex County Division of Solid Waste Management, 13-15 Kennedy
Boulevard, East Brunswick, NJ.
Residents are strongly urged to call the Middlesex County Division of Solid Waste Management for details on compost bins at 732-745-4170. Staff may also be reached by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by fax at 732-296-6566.
