The City of Hamilton gives away free compost for your lawn, garden, and plants.
Each week throughout the year the City picks up your yard waste as part of the curbside yard waste collection program. After it’s picked up, it’s processed and turned into nutrient-rich compost. Now it’s the City’s turn to give some of this compost back to you!
What you need to know
- Bring your own buckets, shovel, and elbow grease.
- The compost is for residential use only.
- Available while quantities last.
Cash donations will be collected at each site by volunteers for Hamilton Food Share. For ever $1 donated, $5 in food is provided. This year, donation made at the compost sites this Spring will be matched 100% by the Pinball Clemons Foundation.
