We recycle 350,000 Tons of Residential and Commercial Yard and Food Waste Every Year

Compost Days™, March 15 - April 15, 2015

Compost Days™ is back, and it’s bigger and better than ever! Last year, our communities helped divert over 375,000 tons of yard waste, food scraps and other compostable materials from the landfill by using their curbside compost carts. We also donated over half mile of compost to local gardens through the Big Garden Give!

THE BIG GARDEN GIVE.

With every compost purchase made during Compost Days™, we will donate the same amount of compost to local gardens growing fruits and vegetables for those in need in our community.

Last year, through the Big Garden Give, we donated 1,119 yards of compost to community gardens - over half a mile of compost!

And that’s just for starters.

Together with our garden partners, Seattle Tilth and the WSU Snohomish County Extension Office, the Compost Days™ Big Garden Give installed two new gardens - a community garden at the Reunion House, senior housing facility, and a school garden at Marysville Arts & Technology High School.

Both gardens are feeding their communities, saving the average family they serve $650 a year in fresh produce.

GREAT COMPOST STARTS WITH YOUR SCRAPS.

Putting your food scraps in your curbside yard waste cart makes a big difference! Nearly 30% of what we throw away in our garbage is food scraps and food soiled paper, and that’s stuff that shouldn’t go to waste.

Vegetable and fruit trimmings, meats, fish and poultry scraps and bones, plate scrapings, egg shells, coffee grounds, paper towels and napkins–even greasy pizza delivery boxes–it can all be composted. Just toss into your curbside yard waste cart.

KNOW WHAT TO LEAVE OUT.

It’s just as important to know what not to put in your curbside cart. These materials don’t go in the compost, do your part to keep them out and “keep compost clean!”
