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.
