FREE Home Compost Workshops Scheduled

The Lancaster County Solid Waste Management Authority (LCSWMA) is partnering with municipalities, institutions, community organizations and Penn State Master Gardeners of Lancaster County to conduct home compost workshops where residents will learn how to recycle organic waste from their kitchens and gardens instead of putting it in the trash. Composting is an excellent way to recycle vegetable scraps, grass clippings, leaves, and other organic materials and turn them into a useful and valuable soil amendment.

Workshop attendees will also learn how to build effective, yet inexpensive home compost bins to meet their needs. Each household in attendance will receive a free kitchen scrap collection bucket and enter a raffle for a home compost bin courtesy of LCSWMA.

Lancaster County residents are invited to attend either of the home compost workshops scheduled. If required, residents should pre-register by no later than Friday at noon prior to the workshop they’ll be attending.

October 14 at the Millport Conservancy located at 737 East Millport Road, Lititz. The workshop is from 10:00 am to 11:30 am. No fee is required, but pre-registration is recommended. To pre-register or for more information, please contact the Warwick Township Recycling Coordinator at (717) 626-8900 or email
