School Composting

The Department of Public Works is committed to supporting Brookline Public Schools in launching and/or expanding school compost programs. As of the 2022-2023 school year, Brookline High School, Lincoln School and Heath School have established composting programs. Based on school interest and DPW staff capacity, the DPW Zero Waste team will support 1-2 additional schools each semester that are ready to launch a school compost program. If you are interested in launching a school compost program at your school, please contact the DPW's Zero Waste Program at [email protected].

  1. Brookline’s Department of Public Works (DPW) often seeks the support of community volunteers to advance the Town's composting initiatives. 

    The DPW frequently requires volunteers to serve as waste station monitors during Town events and/or during school lunches. Monitor duties include educating community members on proper separation methods and sorting out contamination from the compost and/or recycling.

    No previous experience with composting or waste sorting necessary!
