Compost your food waste and close the loop

Put all your food scraps, moldy leftovers, greasy pizza boxes and dirty napkins in your Food & Yard waste cart. It gets turned into rich compost, which closes the loop – feeding the soil to help grow more food and support the environment.

In Spring and Fall, SPU has Bulk Compost Giveaway Events at locations throughout the city, where you can get free compost to close the loop in your own backyard. More events coming Spring 2020.
