Back by popular demand, the City of Piedmont, in partnership with Republic Services, is holding a free compost giveaway at the City’s Corporation Yard (898 Red Rock Road) on Saturday, April 23 from 9 a.m. to 12 pm.
All households can pick up to one cubic-yard of compost while supplies last. Preorders are not available. Bring a shovel, gloves, and container(s) to pick up compost. You must bag and load the compost yourself. Piedmont Public Works staff will also be available to operate a backhoe to lift a larger quantity of compost into the back of trucks. While not required, it is strongly encouraged to fill out the form here to indicate your estimated pick-up time on Saturday.
The compost is made from yard trimmings and food waste collected from Republic Services communities participating in curbside organics collection services. Close the loop by using the finished compost, made locally. Mixing compost with your soil adds nutrients to the soil, aids in water retention and pest control, and helps plants thrive!
