Each year during Compost Giveaway, Halton Region offers compost to Halton residents free of charge.
The spring Compost Giveaway is taking place Monday, May 5 to Saturday, May 10, 2014 at the Halton Waste Management Site.
During the event, tweet us @HaltonRecycles and use the event hashtag #HaltonCompost.
Residents can take up to the equivalent of 7 garbage bags of compost per household.
Remember to bring a shovel (residents must shovel and bag their own compost), and your own container (garbage bags, yard waste bags, reusable containers, or pick-up bed trailer).
During Compost Giveaway, Halton Region coordinates a food drive to support local food banks. Residents are encouraged to make a donation of non-perishable food items or cash.
When using compost in your garden, remember to mix compost with topsoil or another gardening fill. For best growing results, a 60/40 split (60% topsoil and 40% compost) is recommended.
The compost available is made from yard waste, not GreenCart material.
We hope to see you there!
