About Backyard Composting
Green waste from your yard and garden accounts for approximately 25% of the material being hauled from your home each week. By composting, you can improve your soil for a more productive vegetable or flower garden, and help your community at the same time.

What We Can Do For You!
Solid Resources Citywide Recycling Division (SRCRD) develops and implements effective and cost-effective source reduction, recycling, and re-use programs and policies. SRCRD provides technical assistance to City Departments, private sector businesses, multi-family complexes, and the community. The office fosters public/private recycling partnerships and helps to promote new markets for recyclable materials.
Residents can learn about backyard composting, worm composting, types of compost bins, grasscycling, and other smart gardening techniques at the City's free backyard composting workshops. In addition to the workshops, special discounted compost bin sales events are held throughout the year.
