Fairfax City Launches New Composting Center

Post Date:10/15/2018

Fairfax City has opened a new 24-hour Composting Center. 

The Composting Center will be located adjacent to the Community Garden.  Those who live and work in the city are invited to drop off compostable food waste in the composting carts. 

Please review the compost guide and be sure to include only those items accepted for composting at the site. Food waste must be placed in BPI-certified compostable bags before being placed in the composting carts. Free compostable bags will be available at the Composting Center.

Visit for the list of acceptable items and details about the program.  

Also, sign up for the new composting program to receive news, updates, tips and for a chance to win a kitchen compost caddy. (Quantities are limited.)
