Boise is a city that values lasting environments, innovative enterprises, and vibrant communities. The way we manage our resources is a crucial part of our city’s future, and as our population grows, so does the amount of waste generated. Did you know that over 45% of all waste that Boise households sent to the landfill is compostable?
That's about to change.
