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 be entered into a raffle for a home compost bin courtesy of LCSWMA.
Lancaster County residents are invited to attend the next workshop scheduled for October 14 at the Millport Conservancy located at 737 East Millport Road in 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 BKreider@warwicktownship.org.
