Hamilton County Recycling and Solid Waste District is offering free, one-hour programs in Crosby Township and Cleves to get the dirt on backyard composting, said Michelle Balz, assistant solid waste manager for Hamilton County Recycling and Solid Waste District.
Attendees will learn how to balance a compost bin, what materials are compostable and where to purchase a bin.
Residents will receive a free kitchen collector, entitled a Simple Guide to Composting in Your Backyard, and an I ? Compost magnet.
“I encourage residents interested in learning about backyard composting to sign up early as these programs fill up quickly,” said Balz.
“After attending the free, one-hour program, residents are often surprised how easy backyard composting can be.”
