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.

Visit https://www.ci.athens.oh.us/447/Curbside-Composting-Program for more information.

If you do not wish to be enrolled in the composting program, please contact compost@ci.athens.oh.us. 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.
