The Town of Brookline has recently entered a partnership with Black Earth Compost to encourage residents to subscribe to curbside organics at a fixed price set by the agreement. Currently, residents can subscribe to weekly curbside organics collection for $59.99/ 6 months which comes to only $2.31/week. If over 3,000 households sign up for collection the price will drop to $49.99/ 6 months. The Town of Brookline is not involved in the payments for service, agreements will be directly between the resident and Black Earth Compost. Sign up for weekly service here.
The Town Of Brookline also offers backyard compost bins. To assist you in your efforts, home composting bins may be purchased at a discounted price of $46 from the Municipal Service Center located at: 870 Hammond St. Brookline, MA 02467. You can visit the Earth Machine company site for more information.
