FREE COMPOST FOR FAIRFAX RESIDENTS. The compost delivery will be postponed due to concern about invasive bermuda grass that is growing and may contaminate the compost, as well as concern for keeping appropriate social distancing in response to the COVID-19 rules. Sign up for our newsletter on our home page to be sure you get notifications. This compost is made from the food and yard waste collected in our green curbside carts.
This compost is for Fairfax residents only and is not for commercial use.
To ensure there is enough to go around, please do not take more than five 5-gallon buckets (which provides a one inch cover for a 40 square foot garden). Bring your own containers and shovels for collection.
Use of Compost: Compost is a soil amendment that improves the water-holding capacity and structure of your soil, but too much of it can harm your plants. It is recommended that you use no more than 1-2 inches on your annuals & perennials.
