Ocean County Backyard Composting Demonstration Site

To increase awareness and further educate residents about the benefits of home composting, Ocean County developed a demonstration site at its Northern Recycling Center.

 View the Backyard Composting Demonstration Site Image Gallery

The site is located next to the Ocean County Recycling Education Center. Ocean County residents have expressed their strong interest in backyard composting by supporting the environmental benefits it provides.

The demonstration site is open to the public for their viewing Monday through Saturday from 7:30 am to 3:00 pm.

The site displays in a garden setting various types of home composting units and an information kiosk that describes the composting process as well as providing educational literature for visitors.
