Each year during our Compost Giveaway, Halton Region offers compost to Halton residents, free of charge. Residents can take up to the equivalent of 7 garbage bags of compost per household.
What should I bring?
Backyard composting is nature's way of recycling and a simple way to manage your household's food and yard waste. By making your own compost, you can produce high-quality fertilizer for your gardens or lawn.
You can purchase a backyard composter (2 max limit) for $15 at the Halton Waste Management Site. You will also receive a helpful Backyard Composting Guide. Cash, Debit, Visa and MasterCard are accepted.
Backyard composters can also be purchased at various hardware stores.
To make the recycling of household hazardous waste and electronic waste more convenient for residents, Halton Region holds Special Waste Drop-off Days throughout the year. Special Waste Drop-off Days are for Halton residents only. No commercial waste is accepted.
