City offering free compost

The City of Regina is offering free compost to residents while supplies last.

The City reached a major milestone in March with its first “pile flip” at the food and yard
waste pilot processing site. The pile flip is part of how waste is moved through the composting process.

“The City has turned the organic material collected from the Yard Waste Depot and Food and Yard Waste Pilot into compost,” said Kim Onrait, Executive Director of Citizen Services. “We’re very happy to be able to give away free compost for residents to use at home which is great for landscaping, flower beds and lawns.”

To thank Food and Yard Waste Pilot participants, the pilot households will have the first
opportunity to collect the compost ahead of the remainder of the community. Plus, to help
celebrate, all residents who collect compost can enter to win a rain barrel.
