Free compost giveaway Saturday, April 22

Mission Viejo residents can pick up free compost in the parking lot of the Norman P. Murray Community and Center/Oso Viejo Park starting at 8 a.m. on Saturday, April 22, while supplies last.

In celebration of Earth Day, the City’s trash hauler Waste Management of Orange County and green waste processor Tierra Verde Industries are donating the compost.

Composting is the recycling of organic materials back into a useful soil product that can be used in gardens or on potted plants. It can save you money and time and can reduce your garden’s watering and weeding needs. It also benefits the environment by recycling valuable organic resources and extending the life of our landfills. This compost is a rich, organic soil amendment that consists of composted, recycled green waste collected as part of the City’s residential recycling program.

This is a self-service event, so bring a shovel and container to the community center located at 24932 Veterans Way.  Quantities are limited, so each person will be allotted up to 36 gallons of compost.  For more information, call 949-470-3010.


Are you doing this again in 2018? please let me know,
Thanks in advance!
