Close recycling loop with free compost
Submitted By Rhonda Rigenhagen
All year long, Fremont residents keep organic waste out of landfills by recycling yard trimmings and food scraps. Now it's payback time. Allied Waste customers with curbside green waste service can pick up two free bags of compost at the city's 17th Annual Compost Giveaway.
This year's event - hosted by Allied, BLT Enterprises and the City of Fremont - will be 8 a.m. to noon (while supplies last) on Sunday, March 25, at the Fremont Recycling and Transfer Station, 41149 Boyce Road. Customers must bring their most recent trash bill as proof of eligibility.
The bagged compost is the end product of the grass, branches, leaves, food scraps and other organic material that customers set out each week in their green carts. Reusing the compost in yards and gardens helps close the recycling loop.
For more information, visit www.AlliedWasteAC.com or call Allied Waste Customer Service at (510) 657-3500.
