Ready to try Composting?

Composting, nature's way of recycling, turns "organic waste," including food scraps, leaves and grass trimmings, into a valuable organic fertilizer. The City of Carlsbad offers free composting workshops and low cost compost bins. Give it a try!

Free Composting Workshop

The City of Carlsbad has partnered with The Ecology Center to host a series of high-quality hands-on composting workshops FREE to Carlsbad residents. The next series of workshops are being scheduled for Spring 2018.  Please check back for updated information.

Low Cost Compost Bins

Carlsbad residents may apply for a discount coupon to purchase a yard waste bin or vermicomposting bin at a subsidized rate while supplies last.  

For more information about bin purchases and composting workshops please visit The Ecology Center website.  

For questions about these programs, please contact the city’s Recycling & Trash staff at
recycle.trash@carlsbadca.gov or 760-602-4646.
