For one year, Hamburg residents will get FREE access to Farmer Pirates Composting Drop Off Program!

Composting benefits everyone by:

- Reducing landfill waste

- Improving soil and plant health

- Creating a cleaner community

- Supporting a local economy

How it Works:

After you sign up, you will receive a welcome email with all the information needed to participate. Keeping track of the participants will be key information when assessing the success of this program. Let's get composting!

Why Compost?

Did you know that most of what you throw away is not in fact garbage, but a highly reusable resource? Composting keeps those organic materials in production, out of landfills and instead uses them to revitalize and fertilize soil to grow healthy plants, all while creating a cleaner, healthier community!

How do I participate?

Composting with the Farmer Pirates is easy!

  • Simply collect your food scraps in an easy to clean container with a tight fitting lid such as a tupperware, metal bowl, bucket, etc. To make clean out easier you could line this container with newspaper, a paper bag or even a BPI certified compostable bag.

  • Drop off what you have collected and we take care of the rest!

What can I compost?

Wondering what items we accept? You can find our basic list HERE.

  • So many things can be composted with Farmer Pirates like the obvious fruit and vegetable scraps, but also grains, bread, dairy, eggshells, coffee grounds and more. The big No-No's are meat, bones and large quantities oils. 

When & Where?

Anytime beginning September 18th, 2023, drop off your compostables in one of the bins permanently located in the parking lot at the Hamburg Town Hall (6100 South Park Ave, Hamburg, NY 14075) Specific bin location and lock code will be sent after sign up.
