Earth Calendar for February 22nd and February 23rd

Feb 22, 2013

Hamilton County Recycling and Solid Waste District is offering free, one-hour programs for residents to Get the Dirt on Backyard Composting.

 During this one-hour program, attendees will learn how to balance a compost bin, what materials are compostable and where to purchase a bin. Hamilton County residents will receive a free kitchen collector, a “Simple Guide to Composting in Your Backyard,” an I ♥ Compost magnet, and a $20 coupon toward the purchase of a compost bin.  Backyard composting is an easy way to reduce waste from your kitchen and yard while also producing a valuable soil amendment.  Get the Dirt on Backyard Composting programs in the evening at multiple locations and times across Hamilton County.  Registration is required and open only to Hamilton County residents. To register, call 513-946-7734.
