Compost Giveaway for Fairfax Residents (Second Delivery)

Marin Sanitary Services is dropping off another load of compost for Fairfax residents this Wednesday.

Give your garden a boost with FREE compost available to Fairfax residents this Wednesday at the Fairfax Pavilion parking lot. This is the second of three official deliveries scheduled by Marin Sanitary Services (MSS) in accordance with a contract approved by the Fairfax Town Council in December of last year.

Bring a shovel, and a bag or container to transport the compost. You will be asked to present an ID to confirm you are a Fairfax resident. 

The first delivery earlier this month was dropped off a day early to avoid the storm, and went very quickly!

I just called Marin Sanitary and the person who know the answer to the time window has left for the day. Her name is Kim. Wish we had more info.

We were not given an exact time, but the compost definitely will be delivered before the Fairfax Farmer's Market begins at 4:00 - and likely earlier before noon. It is also important to note that the compost is for the personal use of Fairfax residents, and is not for commercial use. Hope to see everyone at the Farmer's Market, please stop by the Sustainable Fairfax table - we will be educating folks about Zero Waste, and invite you to take the Sustainable Fairfax Zero Waste Challenge!

UPDATE: The best information we have right now indicates the compost will be dropped off by about 2pm.

I talked to Kim at Marin Sanitary, and she said the compost could be available as early as 12 noon.

I confirmed with the person delivering the compost that he will drop it off at about 2pm (I spoke with him this morning).
