Compost Giveaways

The City of Hamilton gives away free compost for your lawn, garden, and plants

Each week throughout the year we pick up your yard waste as part of the curbside yard waste collection program. After it’s picked up, we process it and turn it into nutrient-rich compost. Now it’s our turn to give some of this compost back to you!

What you need to know

  • Bring your own buckets, shovel, and elbow grease.
  • The compost is for residential use only
  • Available while quantities last.
