Question:
Does the city subsidize for any type of composting equipment for residential owners? Thank you.

Answer:
L.A. City offers its residents home composting bins at discount sale events and at their compost workshops. For more information, contact 1-800-773-2489 or visit their website (link below).

Residents in other cities should inquire with the respective recycling coordinator for any services offered (link below). Or they may attend a smart gardening workshop offered by the County to purchase compost bins at a discount. The free workshops are held Saturday mornings at parks, libraries and community venues. You are welcome to attend, no reservations needed. Learn the basic techniques of backyard composting, worm composting, grass recycling, water-wise gardening, and fire-wise gardening.
