Residents must bring their own bags or containers (maximum seven garbage bags or equivalent per household) and a shovel in order to bag their own compost. To ensure a healthy garden, a blend of 60 per cent topsoil and 40 per cent compost should be used.The Compost Giveway Event will take place on Saturday September 13th from 8:00 AM to 4:30 PM at the Halton Waste Management Site located at 5400 Regional Road 25 in Milton.

Residents attending this year’s fall event are again encouraged to bring a non-perishable food item or cash donation, which will be distributed to Halton area food banks. During the spring Compost Giveaway in May, 3,440 residents picked up approximately 1500 tonnes of compost created from all of the leaves, brush, tree and garden trimmings collected curbside and dropped off at the HWMS. Residents also donated $7,720 and 4,400 kilograms of food to local food banks as part of the event.
