Media Borough encourages residents who have trash collected by Media Borough Public Works, to participate in curbside composting of the yard and food waste. Composting saves the planet and saves money by keeping composted materials out of the incinerator and landfills and by reducing the amount of trash that is collected by the borough.
Read about curbside composting in the Media Borough Waste Manual (PDF).
Still, confused? Send us your questions via the Submit Your Questions about Curbside Composting form.
Do you live in media? Only Borough residents who also have trash collected by Media Borough Public Works can participate in our programs. Check out the Borough Map (PDF) to see before calling. Thank you!
