Compost creates healthier soil by adding organic matter and improving soil structure. Healthy soil uses water more efficiently, allowing available water to flow toward your plants’ roots, storing water in the soil longer, and reducing runoff and erosion.
The City of Brea and Republic Services will be giving away compost for free on Saturday, February 18, 2023, from 8 to 10:30 a.m. (or until compost runs out), at Tri-City Park, 2301 N. Kraemer Blvd. Please bring your own containers or buckets, which Republic Services staff will fill with compost. If it is raining on February 18, this event will be postponed to March 11. For updates, visit RepublicServices.com/municipality/brea-ca.
To receive free compost, residents must provide proof of residency (California driver’s license or utility bill). There is a limit of 60 gallons of compost per household.
