Composting

Did you know that up to 70 per cent of household waste is organic material that can be composted?

The Town of Cambridge is encouraging residents to buy a compost bin or worm farm to help break down organic waste. You'll notice composting will also make your garden thrive!

Organic waste includes:

  • apple cores
  • fruit skins
  • lettuce
  • carrot skins
  • pumpkin skins
  • bean tips
  • cauliflower leaves
