Buy a Composter:

The City of Thunder Bay offers backyard composters at a subsidized price for city residents. They are available for sale at EcoSuperior’s office for $30.00 which includes a base for the bottom to keep pests out.

EcoSuperior's office is currently closed to the public, please visit the online store on the homepage to purchase a composter at this time.

A backyard composter is easy to assemble and easy to use. It comes with complete instructions. Place it in your yard in a sunny location, where it will be convenient to reach.

Composting is a simple way to reduce your curbside trash by as much as 30 percent! It also provides a great source of superb natural fertilizer for your lawn and garden.
