The City of Santa Monica’s Resource Recovery and Recycling Division will host a Compost Giveaway starting at 7 am this Saturday, Nov. 7, while stocks last.
It will take place at the City Yards, 2500 Michigan Ave., Santa Monica.
The Compost Giveaway is a “bring your own bag” event. A limited supply of burlap bags will be available. Residents may fill five large bags with compost.
The benefits of using compost are numerous. Its use in gardens is an effective way to improve soil health, increase plant production, chemical fertilizers and pesticides. Compost also reduces the use of water.
