By composting, we keep organics (landscape trimmings, food scraps) out of landfills and preserve our top soils. The benefits of compost include building healthy soil, conserving water, reducing greenhouse gas emissions, and saving money. 

Monterey Regional Waste Management Districts also offers free compost workshops and events throughout the year so you can learn the benefits and basics of home composting and green gardening.
