Many people find composting in their own backyard to be a simple process. You can build an enclosure using scrap (untreated/unpainted) lumber or you can purchase one of the many commercial units available through home improvement or online stores.

Actually the City already does some composting. The City currently contracts with Atlas Organics to compost all yard waste collected as part of the yard waste curbside subscription program and yard waste delivered to the Waste Disposal and Recycling Center, as well as all biosolids produced at the North Durham Water Reclamation Facility. The City is also doing pilot programs of curbside food waste collection that is also being turned into compost. This is an area that the City continues to explore expansion, so keep an eye out for more information in the near future.
Not at this time. There may be events in the future that have one-time offers like this as a component, so keep an eye out for those.
