Every spring, for a week, and every fall, for one day, Halton has a "Compost Event". They give out free compost in exchange for a small donation to the Partnership West Food Bank. Every household can take up to seven garbage bags worth of compost.
I love this idea because I love free stuff and also I love compost and I love to get dirty. I also love the idea that the good folks of my community may pay more heed to what they are throwing in their municipal compost bin because it might later end up in their garden.
