If you follow City of Durango and Table to Farm wildlife protection measures, this should not be an issue. Please remember to only put your bucket out on the morning of your collection day (after 6 am and before 8 am). Make sure the lid is on and fully sealed and do not leave your bucket out at night.
No. The city of Durango and Table to Farm are partnering first on outreach and education to encourage more residents and businesses to sign up for compost collection voluntarily.
However, the city will begin evaluating the feasibility of transitioning to 100% participation in food waste diversion over the next 3 - 5 years. The city will also evaluate ways that composting could be incentivized, or the cost of trash collection reduced in the future.
Landfills are the third-largest source of human caused methane emissions and food waste makes up approximately 20% of residential trash in Durango. Reducing waste and increasing composting will be critical to achieving the city's adopted waste diversion and greenhouse gas emissions goals.
Placing a couple of handfuls of sawdust at the bottom of your bucket helps to mitigate smells and keep buckets clean. You can reach out to Table to Farm Compost any time for more sawdust and some will be dropped off on your next pick up day.
Table to Farm offers a second/third bucket for a reduced price.
You might be surprised to learn that many things other than just food waste can be composted. For example, Table to Farm accepts hair clippings, grass clippings, vacuum contents, paper towels and shredded paper products!
Material collected by Table to Farm is transported to their local compost facility and turned into finished compost and artisan soils. Many local farmers use Table to Farm Compost products, as well as nurseries in the surrounding counties.
