Free Compost Giveaway

On April 27, the City will be hosting a free compost give-away event at the Playfields Park parking lot, 2500 Research Park Dr.  This event is for Davis residents only, ID will be checked. Only one vehicle per household, return trips are not allowed.  Compost is available on a first-come first-served basis.

The event will begin at 9AM and will continue until 4PM or until the compost is gone.

Please note that vehicles will NOT be permitted to back up directly to the compost pile for loading.  In order to avoid traffic back-up along Research Park Drive and to ensure that as many residents as possible have access to the compost, vehicles arriving at Playfields Park will be directed to park in a stall, then will be required to shuttle the compost from the pile to their vehicle.  Residents must bring their own equipment (shovels, gunny sacks, wheel barrows, etc.) as none will be provided.

The compost for the event is being generously donated by the Napa Recycling & Compost Facility in Zamora, the same compost facility that receives and processes all the organic material from Davis.

Compost is a soil amendment made from yard trimmings and other organic materials and is used to enrich existing soil.  Napa Recycling compost is OMRI listed, CDFA approved and STA certified.
