Composting & Recycling

Composting your leaves, yard & garden trimmings, and food scraps helps reduce solid waste, save tax dollars, and improve your soil.

Workshops & Presentations 

Staff can conduct free workshops or presentations on composting and recycling for garden clubs, service organizations and other adult groups. We also offer composting and recycling activities and presentations for youth audiences. See our Youth section for more information.
