Free Compost

Submitted By Stephanie Willits

Fremont residents who recycle yard waste and food scraps are invited to reap the benefit of hauling those green carts to the curb each week. Allied Waste customers with curbside green waste service can pick up two free bags of compost at the city's 18th Annual Compost Giveaway.

This year's event - hosted by Allied, BLT Enterprises and the City of Fremont - will be 8 a.m. to noon (while supplies last) on Sunday, March 24, at the Fremont Recycling and Transfer Station, 41149 Boyce Rd.

Customers must bring their most recent trash bill as proof of eligibility.

The bagged compost is the end product of the grass, branches, leaves, food scraps and other organic material that customers set out each week in their green carts. Reusing the compost in yards and gardens helps close the recycling loop.

For more information, visit or call Allied Waste Customer Service at 657-3500.
