The City of Placentia and Republic Services will hold its annual Free Compost Giveaway for residents of Placentia at Tri-City Park on Saturday, March 30, from 8:00 a.m. until 10:30 a.m. (or until the compost runs out). This event provides an opportunity to give back and thank residents for their participation in the City’s green waste recycling program. Residents must bring in their own containers (no bags please) to receive the loose compost. There is a limit of 60 gallons per household, while supplies last.
Compost creates healthier soil by adding organic matter and improving soil structure. Healthy soil uses water more efficiently, allowing available water to flow toward your plants’ roots, storing water in the soil longer, and reducing runoff and erosion. To receive free compost, residents must provide proof of residency (California driver’s license or utility bill). For more information, please contact Republic Services at (714) 238-2444 or the City of Placentia at (714) 993-8189.
