Composting

Composting Locations
Kitchen compost bins are located beside all residential waste bins in Jasper. Both of the community recycling depots (Activity Centre and S Block) also have compost bins.

Kitchen Compost Recommendations
  • Separate organics from regular waste in the kitchen.
  • Small kitchen compost pails are available at Jasper Home Hardware.
  • Wash your container with soap and water regularly to prevent odours and fruit flies.
  • Liners are not needed.
