Buckets still available for Anchorage compost program

Published: Updated:





A new recycling program run by the Municipality of Anchorage has room for a few more people who would like to trade in their table scraps for compost.


On Sunday, volunteers with the Anchorage Community Compost program handed out hundreds of buckets at the Central Transfer Station to people who are interested in recycling food scrap waste in exchange for a bucket of compost.


City Recycling Coordinator Travis Smith said people can drop off scraps, including grass clippings and leaves at the Regional Landfill starting Wednesday in a specially designated bin and pick up compost in return. Scraps can also be dropped off at the Central Transfer Station starting Monday, although there is no compost there.


Smith said he would encourage anyone to recycle their food waste, even those who aren’t interested in getting compost in exchange. He said buckets were still available to people who wanted to be a part of the compost program. People interested should email compost@muni.org to request a bucket.
