Western offers curbside pickup of compostable material in many areas – an innovative service that helps increase diversion & serves the waste reduction goals of our customers and the community.
Why Compost? In the landfill, organic material is covered & compacted and doesn’t have much, if any, oxygen to break down – so it doesn’t “compost” in the way people often think. This anaerobic decomposition results in methane, a greenhouse gas, that is not produced in the same volume (if at all) via typical commercial composting processes. So, when you choose to compost, you are choosing to avoid landfill-produced methane generation – and instead helping to create mulch or compost for reuse. That’s another example of how our customers lead The Way to a Better Environment!
