Solid Waste Division

The Town of Eastham starts residential food composting this Saturday May 13th! Look for the new composting station near the recycling center at the Town Landfill. Compostable bags are allowed and should be clearly marked. Per the Town’s regulations, you must have an annual sticker or pay a fee to access the site. Backyard compost bins available for $46.00 at the Gate House.
