Welcome to the Town of Chevy Chase Composting Program!
You are eligible for weekly curbside compost pick-up, funded by the Town, as long as your address is within the Town of Chevy Chase. These rates will automatically be applied when you sign-up!
The free service includes a 5-gallon bin, which usually holds enough scraps from households of 1-4 people. If you have a larger household or cook more frequently, you can upgrade to a 12-gallon bin for $4.00 per month.
Multi-unit buildings are currently not eligible for this service.

Similar to a recycling service, we collect food waste and other organic material from the local community to be composted and reused. We offer both residential and commercial service as well as composting for events.
Nearly 40% of our solid waste may be composted! We use cutting edge technology and techniques to compost everything from meat and dairy products to grains and oily foods, soiled napkins, and much much more.
You can never use too much compost in your garden – it provides a slow release of macro- and micro-nutrients that won’t burn or damage your plants. It provides a strong and fertile foundation for plants to flourish.
