Proof of residency in the City hosting the event is required. Limit 3 standard size bankers boxes (10"x12"x15") per household. Shred events last until the time listed or until the truck is full, which ever comes first.

Compost Giveaway Community Events

Recology and RethinkWaste team up with its member communities to annually give away compost made from yard trimmings and food scraps collected from residents and businesses in the service area. It's a great soil amendment to enriching your plants and gardens. 
 
Residents in participating communities may take compost at no charge at select locations as long as supplies last (amount varies by community.) Citizens bring shovels, gloves, containers, and proof of residency, and leave with rich compost for their gardens.
 
Check out our Events Calendar for upcoming Compost Giveaway Events.
 
Can't make it to an event? No worries, as we provide compost for free to residents year-round at our Shoreway Environmental Center and have a free compost giveaway program for schools. Find more information here.
