Composting is a process that takes organic materials and converts them into a nutrient-rich soil amendment, helping to revitalize degraded soil when mixed together. Composting also helps reduce methane emissions that come from organic waste in landfills and limits the need for chemical fertilizers. OCWR’s new program is offering STA Certified compost and mulch for free from Bee Canyon Greenery at the Frank R. Bowerman Landfill in Irvine and from Capistrano Greenery at Prima Deshecha Landfill in San Juan Capistrano. Orange County residents, commercial businesses, local cities, and government agencies are now able to request and schedule an appointment to pick up free compost and mulch from OCWR.
IRC and its partners are constantly working towards developing new ways to restore and improve the lands throughout Orange County’s open space. To learn more about enhancements projects, visit IRConservancy.org, LetsGoOutside.org or follow the Landmarks on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
