We celebrate compost every week

Last week, a colleague reminded me that May 3 through May 9, 2009 was International Compost Awareness Week

Oops!  Is this post a week late, then?  Not really: just as "Earth Day is every day," "Compost Awareness Week is every week" for us.

  • We have compost bins available to you -- Montgomery County residents and businesses -- at no charge throughout the year, and our pickup locations are ready for your visit this Spring.
  • The leaves and grass you set out for curbside recycling are composted year-round at our Compost Facility.
  • The Compost Facility produces Leafgro and Compro, available for purchase at local home and garden centers. 

Do you compost?  Please share your success stories!  And, what questions do you have about composting?  We'd love to address them in future blog posts!
