Charleston Now Composting Food Scraps – Sign Up Today!

The City of Charleston is launching a new composting program to make it easier than ever to dispose of food scraps in a more sustainable way.

This pilot program is a great opportunity for all of us to have a positive impact on our local environment.


Why Is Composting Important?

Organic material decomposes in landfills without oxygen and releases harmful methane, a potent gas more than 20 times effective at trapping heat in the atmosphere than carbon dioxide. Landfills make up 17% of the United States’ methane emissions.  Whereas a compost pile decomposes aerobically – with oxygen – producing mainly carbon dioxide.  By composting we can substantially reduce harmful emissions and help mitigate climate change.
