Garden Composters & Green Cone Digesters 

Composters

Make compost in your own backyard. It's simple and can save you money!

Household composting reduces the volume of garbage going to landfill sites. Kitchen food scraps and yard waste such as leaves and grass clippings can be used as mulch around trees and in gardens.

How To Get Started

  • Purchase a backyard composter for $50.00 from the Municipal Office, 330 Wallace Ave North, Listowel.
  • Start recycling your kitchen scraps, leaves and yard trimmings to unleash the power of compost

For more information on what organic materials can be put into a composter, please view the following handout: Composting Information Handout

 

Green Cone Digesters

Green Cone Digesters actually eat the food you don't and can help you save up to 33% of household waste that is collected.

The Green Cone Digester is a completely natural system that reduces your food waste back into its natural components of water, carbon dioxide and small residue.

How To Get Started

  • Purchase a Green Cone Digester for $90.00 at the Municipal Office, 330 Wallace Ave North, Listowel
  • Put all your food waste into your Green Cone, situated in a sunny part of your garden, and forget about it - almost everything disappears. This solar-heated unit takes ALL cooked and uncooked food waste
