Home Composting Program and Virtual Workshop

Home Composting

The Town of Hingham in partnership with the Cleaner Greener Hingham Committee are excited to announce a new Home Composting Program.  On April 22, 2021 the Town of Hingham will be offering rodent-resistant home composting bins for $25, over 50 percent off the retail price.  To obtain a discounted compost bin, please contact the DPW at (781) 741-1430.  Act now, supplies are limited!

Composting is a great way to recycle our organic “waste” into a beneficial soil amendment for our yards and gardens.  Composting at home can also help reduce the amount of trash we haul annually to Covanta SEMASS.  Using the compost in our landscapes helps store carbon in the soil instead of releasing it to the atmosphere.  Residents can reduce their trash by 15 to 20 percent or more by composting leaves, grass clippings, garden debris, fruit peels, vegetable scraps, tea bags, coffee grounds, egg shells, paper towels, napkins and even paper bags.     

Free Composting Workshop

Cleaner Greener Hingham will be offering a free composting workshop on Thursday, April 29th at 7:00 via Zoom.
