Free compost at Bedwell Bayfront Park

 

Looking to start up a spring garden? Menlo Park residents can get free compost at Bedwell Bayfront Park (1600 Marsh Road) on Saturday, March 5, and the first Saturday of every month through November starting at 7 a.m.

People should come prepared with proof they're Menlo Park residents and tools such as shovels and containers to help themselves to the compost. They can take up to one cubic yard of compost, or about two 96-gallon garbage carts.

There will be a large pile of compost near the park's entrance. The compost has been harvested from the residential curbside organic recycling program. First come, first served, but compost cannot be used to pack truck beds or for commercial purposes.

Residents of Menlo Park can also pick up compost year-round at the Shoreway Environmental Center at 333 Shoreway Road in San Carlos on weekdays from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. and weekends from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. There, people must also show proof they're Menlo Park residents. They are allowed to take two 3-cubic-foot paper bags full of compost home. Bags and shovels are provided.

Go to the city's web page about the program for more information.
