Composting can be a valuable tool for supply your garden with nutrient rich soil and to reduce your trash output by as much as 20%!  We put together some resources for you to begin composting some kitchen scraps, grass clippings and even tree leaves.  To help collect kitchen compostables, the Health department is making available to Fitchburg residents a compost collection bin for your kitchen at a cost of only $5.00.  These are available at the Health Department counter at City Hall.
