- If you would like to sit during the event, please bring your own chairs. Otherwise, participants may stand or sit on the ground.

About Us

When Lancaster Compost Co-Ops was started in April 2021, Lancaster residents had zero alternatives to divert organic food and garden scraps from the general waste stream beyond individual backyards. Composting is a mainstream activity in American cities – and we believed it was high time for Lancaster to address the existing community interest.

LCC currently has three co-op sites in Lancaster City, with Culliton Park launching most recently in September 2021. Each site has a critter proof and smell proof compost bin in a public space that allows trained community members to create high quality compost. A local community member, or "captain," independently runs the site with the support of the community participants.
