Composting class offered to Monroe County residents
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? Recycle your fruit and vegetables scraps, coffee grounds, eggshells, grass clippings and leaves. Composting your food waste will reduce waste, your cost for disposal, and save landfill space.
The Monroe County Municipal Waste Management Authority is holding a composting class on June 8. Class will start at 9 a.m. and last approximately 1 hour. The fee is $25 per person and each participant will receive a backyard “Earth Machine” compost bin retail value $99. Class will be held at the Waste Authority in Blakeslee. In order to participate, you must preregister and prepay with the Monroe County Waste Authority. Class is limited to 20 people.
