For a typical Durango household, compostable food waste makes up about 20% of all garbage sent to the landfill. County-wide, from all sources, as much as 40% of material that goes to our landfill could have been composted.
Composting reduces greenhouse gas emissions and turns food waste to into a valuable product which improves soil quality, increases soil carbon sequestration, and helps plants thrive! Durango residents can now sign up for curbside pickup composting service to divert their food waste from the landfill. Residents can also manage their own compost, provided they follow the city codes for composting.
The City of Durango is currently partnered with local company Table to Farm Compost to offer citywide curbside compost collection for residents and businesses.
