Backyard Compost Workshop

Learn how to compost at home.
On Thursday, Oct. 13, 2022, Gaston County Recycling will be offering two workshops for Backyard Composting. Both events will be held at the Citizens Resource Center, 1303 Dallas Cherryville Highway, Dallas.
The first will be 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. and the second workshop will be held 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
The guest lecturer will be Jim Burke, master composter and a man with more knowledge and skill in so many arenas. Jim has retired from his career at the Cooperative Extension facility; he is very active with Master Gardeners, Gaston Beekeepers, Keep Gastonia Beautiful and a host of other very important organizations.
Why should we compost? Well, the EPA suggests that 30 to 40% of our garbage is food waste; maybe half of that is coming from grocery store and institutional facility; the rest is waste that we generate.
