Garden Grove residents may receive up to 60 gallons of compost for free at Garden Grove’s annual Compost Giveaway. The event takes place on Saturday, October 30, 2021, at the Garden Grove Municipal Center, located at 13802 Newhope Street, from 8:00 a.m. to 10:30 a.m., or until supplies run out.

Residents must enter from the rear of the center, located on A Better Way, accessible from Anabel Street, which is north of the center.

Each year, Garden Grove Disposal and the Garden Grove Sanitary District host the Compost Giveaway as a special “thank you” to residents participating in the Sanitary District’s yard waste program. The giveaway essentially “closes the loop” in recycling when material placed in brown yard waste containers by residents is made into compost and returned to the community for reuse.

Residents are advised to bring their own containers or buckets to pick up the loose compost (no bags, please), and to expect long lines. Proof of Garden Grove residency is required. In adherence to COVID-19 health and safety regulations, if you are not fully vaccinated, please wear a mask.

For more information on the Compost Giveaway or yard waste recycling program, call Garden Grove Disposal at (714) 238-2444.
