Annual Compost Giveaway

RecycleSmart, in partnership with Republic Services through the Franchise Agreement, host an annual compost giveaway each year to encourage the reduction of organics to landfill by composting, and the application of compost as a soil amendment. The event is typically held around International Compost Awareness Week each year. 

International Compost Awareness Week (ICAW) is the largest and most comprehensive education initiative of the compost industry. The goal of the program is to raise awareness around the benefits of using compost to improve or maintain high quality soil, to grow healthy plants, reduce the use of fertilizers and pesticides, improve water quality and protect the environment.

The compost provided is made from your green cart materials! To learn more about curbside composting using your green cart click here
