Does the city have a compost program?

The city does compost the loose leaves collected by sanitation crews. More information is on the Utilities pages. The city does not collect food scraps as part of the compost program. You can learn more about backyard composting from the Forsyth County Cooperative Extension, where they host educational workshops and provide information on their website to get you started.
