Keene residents now have an option for curbside compost pick-up.

The Elm City Compost Initiative began its collection service last week, accepting produce, meat and dairy scraps, as well as compostable paper and plastic products.

For $15 per month, the business will pick up a five-gallon bucket each week. Customers receive a clean bucket with each collection.

Kira Wadsworth, one of the initiative’s founders, said she was inspired by a similar business operating in the Upper Valley and Concord.
