Backyard compost bin

Once again the municipality is offering free of charge ‘’FreeGarden’’ EARTH compost bins.  These have a capacity of 310 liters and are made of 100% recycled content.

Our personal experience is that this is just over half full after a complete year.  We are making our first harvest.  There is definitely no associated odor nor excess insects.

It is true that raccoons delight in knocking off the lid but they are not destructive and it is not pushed over once the bottom is embedded.

I urge everyone to try this.  If, as a municipality, we can demonstrate strong uptake, we will be able to be exempted from a Quebec-wide requirement to offer

a cumbersome – and expensive – municipal composting programme.

To acquire your composter, contact the municipal office by phone or by e-mail.
