Why spend money on potting soil, fertilizers, and other items for your garden when you can make your own for free, by composting waste you already have? Turn your scraps into rich soil for planting. This is a great way to recycle your fruit and vegetables scraps, coffee grounds, egg shells, grass clippings, leaves and much, much more. Composting your food waste will reduce waste, your cost for disposal, and also save valuable landfill space.
The Monroe County Municipal Waste Management Authority (the Waste Authority) is holding 4 composting classes this year. They will be held the second Saturday of the month, May, June, September and October. The classes will start at 9:00 a.m. and last approximately 1-½ hours. The classes are free and composter bins will be available to purchase at cost. One lucky winner will receive a free backyard composter. All classes will be held at our facility in Blakeslee, and a certified Master Gardener will be teaching the classes. In order to participate, you must register with the Monroe County Waste Authority.
Class sizes are limited to 20 people.
