Compost Days Discounts and the Big Garden Give
Mar 16, 2015 - Apr 15, 2015
Compost Days is back! The month-long effort thanks local residents for diverting over 375,000 tons of food, food-soiled paper and yard debris from landfills through curbside composting.
To celebrate this achievement, from March 15th through April 15th, Compost Days is offering the biggest discounts of the year on Cedar Grove compost, and get 25% off kitchen food scrap containers and compostable bags at all Fred Meyer stores.
Your purchase of Cedar Grove compost results in a compost donation to schools and gardens feeding our community!
For the second year in a row, Compost Days will contribute free compost to local schools and 120 gardens with the “Big Garden Give” – a community compost drive. You can help! For every bag of Cedar Grove compost purchased during the campaign, one bag of compost will be donated to school-based garden programs and community gardens.
Last year’s Compost Days “Big Garden Give” campaign resulted in a total of 1,119 yards of donated compost to community and school gardens — enough to fill nearly 450 standard pick-up truck beds. Donated compost also helped two new gardens get started – Seattle’s Reunion House, a senior housing community, and the Marysville Arts & Technology High School.
Let’s spread even more compost good cheer this year! Download your compost coupon and help a garden at the same time at: www.CompostDays.com
Compost Days is a joint project of King County, Seattle Public Utilities, Waste Management, and Cedar Grove.
