Community Compost Dropoff
LexSORT (Lexington Shared Organics Recovered Together) provides free compost drop-off locations throughout town. Lexington residents who register for this program can drop off household food scraps and compostable kitchen waste at no cost.
Before registering, please review the information below. Once, you have reviewed the information you can register here. There is no cost to registering, but it is required to receive the combination to the locks on the bins. The locks are there to minimize contamination, NOT to prevent anyone from taking advantage of the program.
Choose from two outdoor drop-off locations hosting secure collections bins available 24/7. When you register to participate, you will receive a combination code to unlock the bins.
- Carriage House @ Lexington Community Center (39 Marrett Rd.)
- Public Service Building (201 Bedford St.)
The Town is pleased to offer a roll of 5 BPI-certified compostable bags and a kitchen composting bin to each registered household for collecting your food scraps. The bags and bins will be available for pickup at the front desk at the Samuel Hadley Public Services building located at 201 Bedford St. Please show your LexSORT registration confirmation email to DPW staff to receive your starter kit.

LexSORT began as a pilot program run by the Lexington Zero Waste Collaborative with funding from the Community Endowment of Lexington, an endowed fund of the Foundation for MetroWest. Thank you to these community partners for starting this successful program that is now fully administered by the Town.
