Composting is nature's way of recycling. Rather than sending your food scraps and lawn clippings to the landfill, you can compost them to create a nutrient-rich fertilizer for your garden or lawn. Register to attend this free composting class and learn how!
This class is part of the City of Austin's Home Composting Rebate Program. Austin residents who pay the Clean Community Fee on their utility bill qualify for a $75 rebate on a home composting system. Simply attend a composting class, then apply!
