Compost

Composting organic materials like yard waste and food scraps is a simple way to save the world a little each day.

24% of our community’s waste is actually compostable material – material that could be used to enrich the soil of lawns and gardens instead of being discarded. Households and businesses can bring yard and food waste to OCRRA’s compost sites.

OCRRA turns these materials into Pride of New York mulch and compost.

All our compost is USCC Certified, which means that it has met a series of guidelines that ensures it is a consistent, high-quality product. Residents can buy our ready-to-use compost at many local retailers; see the list below to find the closest seller!

Compost offers a number of benefits, including:

  • Adding nutrients to the soil, so plants grow better
  • Retaining moisture, so you don’t have to water as much
  • Suppressing the spread of plant disease, so your garden stays healthy
  • Reducing the need for chemicals and pesticides, keeping pollutants out of the groundwater supply

Whether you’re a composting veteran or just beginning your own project, OCRRA has plenty of helpful tools and advice.
