Residents of Milton, Burlington, Oakville and Halton Hills are invited to pick up free compost tomorrow (Saturday, Sept. 23).

Halton Region’s Fall Compost Giveaway is a thank-you to residents for helping divert about 27,000 tonnes of yard waste last year.

During the event, Halton residents can take up to the equivalent of seven garbage bags of compost per household, free of charge from the Halton Waste Management Site, 5400 Regional Road 25 in Milton.

Residents will be required to bring their own shovels, garbage bags and/or containers to collect the compost material between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m.

Staff will be accepting non-perishable food donations for food banks in Halton, but no cash donations will not be accepted.
