Home Composting Workshops

Join ACSWMD for free workshops to learn how easy it is to turn your household food waste into rich compost for your yard and garden.

You paid for your banana peels, egg shells, and carrot tops, so don’t throw them away! By composting, you reduce greenhouse gas emissions, recycle nutrients locally, and create a resource for growing healthy soil and food in your community. Plus, it's a simple way to comply with Vermont’s Universal Recycling Law, which bans food scraps from the landfill.  

This free workshop covers compost bin options, how to set up and manage a pile, the benefits and uses of compost, troubleshooting tips, preventing wildlife from being interested in your compost pile, and other options you have for keeping food scraps out of the trash.
