City Counselor Matt O'Malley and J.P. Licks Announce Coffee Composting Program!

City Counselor Matt O039Malley and JP Licks Announce Coffee Composting Program

We were inspired by Councilor Matt O’Malley’s initiatives – the plastic bag ban and his push to get curbside composting started in Boston. We are happy to help push that effort toward sustainability along by starting to make the coffee grounds available. With so many environmentally conscious people in Boston & the surrounding towns and us having this amazing resource of coffee grounds, it felt like an easy way to connect with the neighborhoods we call home.

It’s great for your garden:

Adding coffee grounds to your soil helps with drainage, water retention, and aeration and decreases how much you need to depend on chemical fertilizers (more info will be available on our website about how to use it), so why not - let’s make our neighborhoods more beautiful!

Put it in your composting pile:
Coffee grounds are considered a green compost material (food scraps, grass clippings, coffee grounds) so mix it with brown compost material (newspaper, dry leaves, etc).
