With the discontinuation of the backyard pick up program the City of Humboldt would like to work with you to help set up a compost system at your home.

Michelle Stevenson, the Recreation Program Co-ordinator for Humboldt says they will be bringing in an expert from REACT Waste Management to introduce the compost system.

"We have a member of REACT coming in and she is going to teach you how to get started with the compost program for yourself and how to maintain it.'

Stevenson encourages the community to come out and take advantage of the free backyard composting workshops.

If your interested in starting your own backyard compost you can attend the workshops this Thursday from 1:30-3:00p.m. and 7:00-9:00p.m.

Although you can show up the day of pre-registration is appreciated. Pre-register by calling Michelle at 682-2597 or e-mail recprograms@humboldt.ca.

The sessions are taking place in Meeting Room #1 at the Humboldt Uniplex.
