City of Johnson Compost Collection Trial

The City of Johnson is committed to creating a greener future for the city residents.

Through an affiliation with the City of Johnson and Ozark Compost & Swap a composting trial program is being launched to provide the Johnson residents the opportunity to experience curbside compost collection.

Your participation and feedback is important to the future of implementing city wide compost collection.

Why Compost?

Reduce Greenhouse Gases

When food waste goes to the landfills it suffocates under the pressure of all the trash. Without oxygen the food waste releases methane gases which is released into our atmosphere. Methane is 25x more potent then carbon dioxide.

Decrease Landfills

Did you know our current landfill in NWA will reach capacity March of 2024? Food waste makes up 30% of our landfills. By removing the food waste from our landfills we can decrease the overall footprint.

Healthy Compost

It's incredible to know that our food waste can be turned into a useful soil amendment thriving with microbial life and nutrients. Compost rich with life can actually sequester carbon from our atmosphere and store it in our soil, along with having a healthy garden.
