Since the City of Missoula purchased EKO Compost in November 2016 and created Garden City Compost, we have been investing in new equipment and upgrading our composting processes. We want to provide citizens with consistent, high quality compost products while improving our practices to better control odor. In addition, we are proud to continue the tradition of resource recovery in our community and are excited for the future. The amount of material being diverted from the landfill has increased with the help of the public and local businesses in the region. For that, we say, THANK YOU!
