Halton residents are invited to attend the Spring Compost Giveaway, free of charge, as a thank-you for helping divert approximately 34,000 tonnes of yard waste last year. Residents may pick up the equivalent of 7 garbage bags of compost per household.

What should I bring?

  • Yard waste bags, garbage bags, reusable containers, pick-up bed or trailer for hauling


  • non-perishable food items or monetary donations to support local food banks are encouraged
