The Department of Public Works is offering free composting classes!
It is estimated that composting can decrease your contribution to landfills by 25%-30%. From Malibu to San Dimas, LA’s Dept. of Water and Power has free weekend composting workshops countywide to help residents set up a simple household system. This is also where you can purchase a compost bin at a huge discount for $40 (a similar model at a gardening center goes for well over twice that price). City of Glendale workshops offer residents a free compost bin and pitchfork after attending the class.
