Last updated 7/3/2019 at 9:56am
Learn how to compost your yard and garden waste at a free class on Thursday, July 11 at 6:30 p.m. in the Grant County Public Works public meeting room located at 124 Enterprise St. SE, Ephrata. The class will last approximately 60 minutes.
After attending the class, one participant from each household will receive a free, portable compost bin. Participants do not need to pre-register to attend.
Composting is a beneficial way of turning yard and garden waste into a resource that helps plants grow healthier and faster by keeping the soil loose and well drained. While it is not a substitute for fertilizer, it does contain beneficial nutrients. Composting may also save you money by reducing how much garbage you throw away.
The class is sponsored by Grant County Solid Waste and the Washington State Dept. of Ecology. For more information, contact Grant County Solid Waste at 754-6082.
