Halton End of Summer Compost Giveaway: September 16th

Tags: Halton, Waste Management, Compost, Homeowner, Gardening

The end of summer and beginning of fall is an important time for homeowners to maintain and prepare their property before winter sets in. Cleaning up garden beds and preparing for the next spring before the cold weather sets in can be a great investment that will yield a healthy garden next May. Applying compost is one of the best ways to increase the health of your garden.
 
Compost feeds bacteria and other soil microorganisms that are beneficial for roots when they start to grow next spring. It is also helpful for retaining moisture, and fending off plant diseases. Adding a layer of compost can also insulate your garden from the cold for longer and improve the nutrient availability.
 
The-end-of-summer compost giveaway takes place one day only on September 16, from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at Halton’s waste management site. Click here to view a map.
 
What should you bring?

 
Residents can also purchase a backyard composter from the Halton waste management site for $15 each. Then you’ll be able to make high quality compost at your own home from food and yard waste.
