Composting Committee

Mission Statement
The mission of the Composting Committee is to educate the community about the environmental and financial benefits of food waste recycling and seek ways to make composting accessible to all residents, businesses, and institutions. The Committee will promote the removal of organics from the waste stream and encourage the composting of food waste at a municipal transfer station and/or at home.  


  • Provide community education and outreach and be a resource to help residents, businesses, and institutions understand the benefits of food waste recycling and reduction.
  • Assist officials from the Town of Kennebunk and RSU 21 in recycling municipal food waste.
  • Advise the Select Board on food waste recycling programs and projects that may reduce the amount of solid waste the community generates and therefore reduce the amount of carbon and methane the community produces.
  • Offer best practice guidelines on ways to reduce the amount of food waste at municipal and school properties.
  • Research, evaluate and make recommendations intended to result in cost savings to the Town on waste disposal fees.
  • Collaborate with the Climate Action Plan Task Force as composting is an important aspect of any community’s Climate Action Plan.

The Composting Committee was formed on August 16, 2022.  A meeting schedule has not yet been established.  

All meetings will be posted in Town Hall and on the Meeting Calendar.
