The County of Kaua‘i has been distributing compost bins free of charge for over 20 years. In total, over 8,000 bins have been provided to residents, schools, and other interested groups. Surveys have shown that each compost bin diverts an average of 10 tons of food and yard waste over its lifetime.

For more information on backyard composting, visit the county’s website at www.kauai.gov/composting, where you can also watch the required 8-minute training video to receive a free bin.

Schools or other groups that are interested in a composting bin can call 808-241-4841 or email [email protected].
