Tipping fees at the Marsh Folly composting facility are to resume as of February 1, a Government spokeswoman has announced.

The nominal fee of $25 per truck was waived last year to help to assist with the Island’s post hurricane recovery, she explained.

The facility received record amounts of horticultural waste in October following back-to-back hurricanes Gonzalo and Fay. Trash went from 100 truck loads per day to 1,200 and Marsh Folly employees were required to work for extended hours to keep up with the increased volume.

The tipping fees help to pay for a high-grade compost product that is provided for free to both commercial and residential customers.

Creating compost locally saves on using imported materials and helps Bermuda to be more sustainable.

Compost made at Marsh Folly is used by landscapers, farmers and homeowners.
