featured graphic for the city of Garden Grove

On Saturday, May 7, 2022, from 8:00 a.m. to 10:30 a.m., the City of Garden Grove, in partnership with Republic Services, will host a free compost giveaway event, offering residents up to 60 gallons of nutrient-rich soil. The event will be held at the Garden Grove Municipal Service Center, located at 13802 Newhope Street. The event is open to Garden Grove residents only. Proof of residency is required.

The distribution will be held in the center’s parking lot on a first-come, first-serve basis. Vehicles must enter the parking lot through A Better Way, accessible from Anabel Street.

Residents must bring their own containers and are limited to 60 gallons per vehicle. Bags are not permitted.
Due to the popularity of this free event, residents should expect long lines.

The annual compost giveaway is one way the City and Republic Services thank the community for participating in the current residential green waste collection program.

A new state-mandated organics recycling program is being developed that will require the community to recycle food scraps and yard waste. To learn more, visit
