The Chelmsford DPW is pleased to announce a new curbside organics program for food scraps.

The curbside service provides every other week pickup. A 6-month subscription for every other week pickup is $14.99/month.

DPW will provide the compost starter kit, which includes a 13-gallon bin or 4-gallon (apartment option) bin and set of compostable liners that will be delivered by Black Earth. Interested residents should sign up directly through Black Earth at

Starter kits will be delivered on October 4th and pickups will begin Wednesday, October 11th at the DPW on Alpha Rd.

Residents that participate in the curbside program are also provided with a voucher for one 40-lb. bag of compost redeemable at places nearby.

Should more than 300 Chelmsford households register, the subscription price will be lowered by 20% for all participants.
