Cool the Climate – Compost!

OC Waste & Recycling (OCWR) will be participating in International Compost Awareness Week (ICAW) from May 5-11, 2019. The focus of ICAW is to educate the public about the important benefits of recycling organic waste into compost.

Throughout the week, OCWR will raise awareness on the benefits of using compost to improve or maintain high quality soil, to grow healthy plants, reduce the use of fertilizer and pesticides, improve water quality, and protect the environment. 

Follow OC Waste & Recycling on social media @OCWaste all week long for information, tips and resources on composting. You can also visit the compost awareness page for more information.
