This spring, Cuyahoga County residents are invited to learn more about residential composting and creating the perfect soil amendment for their yard.

The Cuyahoga County Solid Waste District will host informative in-person seminars and online webinars on how to properly compost residential yard waste and food scraps. Composting and vermicomposting help reduce the amount of organic waste sent to landfills while creating a healthy soil additive that can be used in gardens and landscapes.

Composting classes are held at least twice a month from April-October. Registration is required.
