FREEHOLD, NJ – The Monmouth County has announced its spring 2013 Backyard Composting schedule for Monmouth County residents.

After an informative 45-minute presentation you will know the how-to’s of reducing your yard and household waste and improving your soil. The advance registration sessions are as follows:

  • Sunday, April 14 at 10 a.m. – Deep Cut Gardens, 352 Red Hill Rd., Middletown
  • Saturday, April 20 at 10 a.m. – Ocean Township Library, 701 Deal Rd., Ocean

There is no charge to attend the workshops, but space is limited and advance registration is required. Register by calling 732-683-8686, ext. 6721 or by downloading the registration form from the recycling section of the County Reclamation Center’s webpages at www.visitmonmouth.com.

“Many residents want to do their part in preserving the environment, yet they struggle with how to reduce household waste,” said Monmouth County Freeholder Serena DiMaso. “The Backyard Composting program is helpful for those residents who are seeking guidance and provides not only direction, but also the opportunity to purchase a bin for composting that will be picked up at their property once it is full.”

Participants may also purchase an Earth Machine backyard composting bin at the session for $35. Payment must be by a check made payable to Monmouth County Grant Fund.  

If you already compost and would like to purchase an Earth Machine backyard compost bin, you may do so for $35 at one of the five towns that have partnered with the county to expand composting opportunities for residents.
