Note: The Home Composting Program is currently undergoing redesign and will be relaunched later in 2023. Additional information and workshop dates are forthcoming. For questions about the Home Composting Program, or to be notified when workshops are scheduled, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Residents can get a rebate when they attend a required workshop and buy composting equipment for their home. Food waste, like fruit and vegetable scraps, can be broken down into compost. Compost is rich in nutrients and can be added to soil as a fertilizer to help with gardening and farming. We—DC Government—offer a one-time rebate of up to $75 and not more than the cost of the system minus $25. For example, if you buy a $90 composting system, you can get a $65 rebate.
This program is called Home Composting and is offered by the DC Department of Public Works. If you can’t or don’t want to compost at your home, you can bring your food waste to a location near you on weekends, and we’ll compost it for you.
