City of Athens Curbside Composting Program

Recently the City of Athens passed a new trash and recycling contract with Athens Hocking Recycling Center (AHRC) that includes a curbside composting program.

Beginning on July 1, 2020 all non-commercial residents will be automatically enrolled in the program. Residents will receive a composting container delivered to their address and the compost fee will appear on the bill they receive in August. There are no additional steps a resident must take in order to be part of the program.

If you do not wish to be enrolled in the composting program, please contact Include your name, the address(es) you want to opt out of, and your account number if you have it. You may be contacted for additional information.
