Backyard Composting Workshops

It’s Time to Compost!

Are you unsure what to do with your kitchen, garden, and yard scraps? Would you like natural, home-made compost for your lawns and gardens in the spring? Then, you can expand your recycling efforts to include kitchen scraps and yard debris by signing up for a Backyard Composting Workshop to turn your yard waste and food scraps into a valuable resource for your garden.

Attendees of in-person workshops will take their compost bin home following the class. Attendees of online webinars will pick up their compost bin in either Pittsburgh or Media (your choice) after the webinar
