Free compost is available for Mission Viejo residents in the parking lot of the Mission Viejo Animal Services Center starting at 11 am on Saturday, August 15 while supplies last.

Composting is the recycling of organic materials back into a valuable soil product that may be used in gardens or on potted plants – which can save you money, time and reduce your garden’s watering and weeding needs. It also benefits the environment by recycling vital organic resources and extending the life of our landfills. 

The City teams up with Waste Management to provide the compost.

Don’t miss out! The City of Mission Viejo, in partnership with Waste Management, will be dropping off FREE compost at the Mission Viejo Animal Shelter (28095 Hillcrest) on Saturday, August 15th. Mission Viejo residents are welcome to bring their own shovel plus a bag or container and fill it up with fresh, healthy compost for their garden. Residents may stop by any time after 11:00 a.m., but please note compost will only be available while supplies last. We also ask that during this event you please follow proper social distancing guidelines and wear a face mask.
