Compost Collection Collective

Thank you for supporting our community garden by saving and
donating your kitchen waste to our compost pile.

We have collection containers available for use in which you simply leave by our compost area when filled and pickup a fresh clean container for next week’s “deposit”. If you prefer, you may simply leave your sealed container next to the bin and take a clean container from the left bin if one is available. Please only place kitchen waste as detailed below. No plastic bags. Also for your convenience, collection containers will be
available in the back of the church on Sunday mornings and you may
leave your filled container there as well.

There are also piles marked in front of the compost area for the
collection of grass clippings (if not treated with chemicals please),
garden cuttings, and fall leaves.

Thank you again for your efforts, support, and donations!
