The amount of material that you and residents all over Boise have composted has blown away all expectations. Boise households have composted nearly six million pounds of material in the first two months alone. Without your efforts, all of that material would have been dumped and buried in the landfill. Instead, it’s being turned into a valuable and useful new product that will improve the soil in landscapes across the city this fall. Want to know what happens to all the material that has been collected?
Boise's new residential curbside compost collection keeps material out of the landfill and turns it into a useful product that will improve soil in landscapes across the city.
We offer curbside recycling collection for residents and businesses. Recyclable materials include aluminum & steel, corrugated cardboard, paper, plastics and even motor oil.
In addition to curbside trash collection for residents and businesses, special collection weeks, overflow pick-up, and large item pick-up are available.
