Waste Management of Alameda County sponsors a compost giveaway event each year, usually held in early May at Memorial Park (for Albany residents only).

The City'a 2018 compost giveaway was held on May 5th at Memorial Park. We distributed a total of 40 cubic yards of Waste Management EarthCare Homegrown Compost! Several folks who came to pick up compost stuck around to help the Friends of Albany Parks spread mulch and clean up Memorial Park.

Please check back in the spring of 2019 for information on our 2019 compost giveaway!


Special thanks to Albany High School’s Earth Team and the City of Albany Public Works staff who helped check IDs and load compost during the 2018 event!
