Organic Materials (the green bin)
All your organics are processed into compost right here at the PCSWM facility, Over 5600 tonnes of organic material was processed into a rich black soil called compost. Every May, during Compost Week we hold our annual compost giveaway. Pictou County residents can pick up 2 free bags of compost. But if you miss it, don’t worry, there’s always lots available for sale. Don't forget to bring your shovel!
