Subsidy for home composters

MRC de Roussillon offers a subsidy program for the purchase of a home composter to encourage people to try composting.  This subsidy allows you to claim a refund of 50% of the purchase cost of your composter up to $100.

Thanks to your composter, you will be able to produce rich compost that will aid plant growth while reducing use of chemical pesticides and fertilizer.

Features of a good composter

  • Have no bottom
  • Provide good aeration
  • Have a lid
  • Be easy to turn compost

Types of composters

  • Wood composters are the most eco-friendly solution.
  • A composter with two chambers makes it easier to manage compost. This allows you to add fresh organic waste to one chamber while compost matures in the other.
