Get your free compost

Need some compost for your garden? You should make your way to Lakeview Park this weekend.

Between 8 a.m. and noon on Saturday, April 30, the region will be giving away free compost on a first come, first serve basis. The compost is made from the organics collected through the regional green bin and yard waste programs.

Those looking to get some of the free compost are asked to bring a non-perishable food item for donation, as well as a shovel and container to carry their loot.

There will also be green bins, blue boxes and backyard composters available for cash-only purchase, and broken bins can be exchanged for free.
