Free Composting Workshops

Ferris Kawar of the Burbank Recycle Center is happy to announce 11 new free composting workshops to celebrate the City’s 20th anniversary of backyard composting. It's fun for the whole family and compost bins are free for residents.

Over the years more than 10,000 residents have taken this workshop to learn how to turn their leaves, grass and food scraps into rich chocolaty soil for their yards. Help Burbank become a truly sustainable city and achieve Zero Waste.
