Free Compost Available

Durham Region’s Works Department has teamed up with the townships of Scugog and Uxbridge to offer free compost to residents at special events this Saturday. The compost is made using organics collected through curbside green bin and leaf and yard waste programs. Residents should bring a shovel and containers to carry compost. Quantities are first-come first served, and limited to four blue boxes of compost per vehicle. Green bins, blue boxes, and backyard composters will also be available for cash-only purchase, and broken bins can be exchanged for free. The event will be held at two locations; Scugog Community Recreation Centre at 1655 Reach St. in Port Perry, and the Uxbridge Arena and Recreation Centre at 291 Brock St. W. in Uxbridge from 8am until noon. The event will take place rain or shine; residents are encouraged to bring a non-perishable food item to be donated to a local food bank. You can get more information online at durham.ca/waste
