Ann Arbor, Mich., Launches Composting Pilot Program

The program, More Composting, More Carts!, aims to increase the use of the city’s composting program.

In an effort to get more residents to participate in its composting program, Ann Arbor, Mich., has launched a composting pilot program called More Composting, More Carts! The program began in May and early June, when program volunteers placed stickers on composting, recycling and trash bins to inform residents on which materials should go in each bin.

To participate in the program, residents in the pilot area can purchase a composting cart for $15. Carts are being delivered for free until June 30.
