Menlo Park residents are invited to pick up free compost at Bedwell Bayfront Park on Saturday, July 2, during regular park hours while supply lasts. Compost is available the first Saturday of every month (except December).
Residents should bring proof of residency, shovels, containers, and be prepared to help themselves to the large pile of compost just inside the entrance to the Park, located near the intersection of Bayfront Expressway and Marsh Road. The material comes from residential recycling of organic material through the curbside collection program.
For garden improvement tips and where to buy mulch and compost locally, visit San Mateo County RecycleWorks Program.
