Cedar Grove Composting, a Seattle-based composting company, is celebrating the 10th anniversary of its annual Compost Days. As part of the festivities, residents will receive significant discounts on Cedar Grove composts and other products.
“Compost Days is Cedar Grove’s thank you to the residents of the Puget Sound region for so diligently recycling their yard and food scraps, making our region a national leader in composting,” said Karen Dawson, director of marketing and community relations for Cedar Grove, in a statement. “By leaving their compostable material at the curb, Puget Sound residents prevent those materials from ending up in landfills and ensure the material is instead manufactured locally into nutritious soils.”
Since Compost Days began in 2008, Cedar Grove estimates that the residents of King County, Snohomish County and Pierce County, Wash., have composted more than 3.5 million tons of yard and food waste. Cedar Groves will also host a volunteer event at Elk Run Farm, a farm that grows food exclusively for food banks in the greater Seattle area. Cedar Grove will be donating a truckload of compost to the farm.
“We are proud to support one of the remaining farms in King County, and one that provides fresh and locally grown food and vegetables for South King County families,” said Dawson in a statement.
