SALISBURY — The city’s public services department has begun its yard waste compost giveaway at its Grants Greek Compost Facility, where anyone, not just Salisbury residents, can pick up free, high-quality compost generated from last year’s curb-side yard waste.

Compost is a healthy soil conditioner that can be used to improve plant and soil quality. The city’s compost is mixed with wood mulch and leaves, processed, composted and converted into a rich organic matter that boasts additional benefits such as water conservation, weed prevention and soil erosion reduction.

The Grants Creek Composting Facility is located at 1915 Grubb Ferry Road. Compost is available for pick up on Fridays from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m. or until supplies are depleted.

For more information please contact the public services department at 704-638-2098. If no one is available at that number, call 704-638-5260.
