Help Mecklenburg County Reduce Waste the Natural Way

Fall is almost here, and there’s no better time for the residents of Mecklenburg County to go natural and learn to make rich fertilizer for spring gardening.

In their ongoing effort to reduce waste, experts from Mecklenburg County Solid Waste Management have announced a series of workshops in composting and other methods of residential organic waste control. Anyone can compost almost anything organic – from vegetable peelings to yard waste. Instead of relegating all that organic matter to the garbage can, learn how to put it to good use.

The workshops are held the following Saturdays from 10 a.m.-noon and the cost is FREE. Register at our website at http://wipeoutwaste.com, under the Home Composting tab, or call 704.336.4304 to sign up.
