Compost Incentive Program


The Town of Mountain Village  is currently working to reach a zero-waste goal by 2030, which means reducing the amount of trash sent to landfills from our community.

Food and yard waste can take up as much as 30 percent of your trash bin. By composting, you can significantly reduce the amount of waste you send to the landfill, and help the Mountain Village community achieve our zero-waste goals. The Mountain Village’s Green Team Committee is offering a recently revamped Composting Incentive Program that will allow Mountain Village homeowners to receive a fully-subsidized home composting unit.

How Does This Work?

The first 20 applicants will receive a home composting unit and scale. AS OF NOW, THERE ARE ONLY THREE SPOTS REMAINING. Applications will be processed on a first-come, first-serve basis. Along with a completed application, residents must also attend one of three trainings and provide food diversion data to the Green Team Committee through an online form. If participants fail to provide accurate data, they will be invoiced for the full amount of the composting unit and scale.
