Community Compost Hubs

Bonito Compost Bin


Our community compost hubs are one of several options the City has for residential composting. Hub locations are currently housed at the city-sponsored community gardens. These 3-bin systems are available to the public for drop off of acceptable items* spring-fall. All of our bins are stewarded by volunteers in the community and finished compost is available periodically to those that assist with monthly maintenanceInterested in joining? Sign-up here. 

Winter Information: The compost hubs are closed in winter. The size and build of these bins do not allow for consistent year-long decomposition of materials. Due to this, we encourage members of the hubs to utilize our Residential Food Scraps Drop-off Self Service Stations located at the Flagstaff CSA Store and Hal Jensen Recreation Center which are serviced regularly year-round. Materials are taken to farms in Northern Arizona that can process throughout the winter.
