Food Compost Pilot Program

This December, Canton will launch a one-year residential Food Compost Pilot Program to help reduce the amount of food waste being sent to landfills. Composting is a sustainable alternative to disposing of food waste that turns the material into rich, healthy soil.

Participants will receive a 5-gallon bucket with a lid, a sticker displaying the list of acceptable food waste, and a guide listing program information. There will be three designated locations throughout the township for drop off.

More details on the program will be available as we get closer to the December start date. Questions can be emailed to
