Bulk Compost Giveaway Events 2018

What’s the result of keeping your food waste out of the garbage? Rich, fertile compost!

When you throw food scraps in the garbage, you break the natural cycle of food returning to the soil—creating more greenhouse gases. Composting transforms your food scraps into nutrient dense soil that will help grow more food.


Stop by the event below to get up to ½ cubic yard (per household) of free bulk compost for your garden on a first come, first served basis. Remember to bring your own shovel and container to load and haul the compost.

Saturday, April 21, 2018
9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
South Seattle College (6000 16th Ave SW, Seattle, WA 98106)
North Parking lot, next to Horticulture building
