The city of Edina will hold another free compost distribution event starting Friday 3rd September.

Edina residents can use pre-sealed compost bags in the parking lot of Braemar Golf Dome, 7420 Braemar Blvd. pick up.

“Since our first event, the number of materials and households participating in the bio-recycling program has increased significantly,” said Twila Singh, coordinator for bio-recycling. “The residents now know the value of uneaten bread crusts and moldy cheese slices. Although the weekly contribution of each household may seem small, the enormous amount of compost that closes up for us shows the significant impact of our city. “

Compost bags are offered according to the “first come, first served” principle. Two deliveries to the site are scheduled over a two-week period, so residents should check the city’s social media accounts for updates on availability. Residents should use appropriate lifting techniques as each sack weighs approximately 40 pounds. The city staff will not be available on site.
