Compost Days™ returns in 2017 to celebrate this region’s phenomenal recycling efforts. Cedar Grove is honored to partner with communities in Snohomish, King and Pierce Counties to recycle approximately 350,000 tons of yard debris and food scraps annually; material that is diverted from the landfill. In addition to offering deep discounts on Cedar Grove soils March 6 – April, 9, we’ll give a truckload of compost to two important community projects – an agriculture buffer project on a farm in Carnation and an urban garden project in Seattle.
Coupons for bagged product are valid at all Cedar Grove landscape yards and participating retailers through the entirety of the promotion. Click, print and start saving today!
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.
