We currently have compost that can be sifted and can show you how! Send an email or leave a message in the garden for Julia or Anthony or Michael. We can show you how this works. We also have wood chips from RIOC chipping that are usable for mulching your paths or beds.
As you clean up, please keep following the signs to New Materials (inside) and Branches Only (outside). Take any and all smaller plants like hosta and smaller branches to the New Materials bin to compost. Please remember that if you clip up a bush or hosta plant or vine in your garden, then you should re-clip it or break it into smaller pieces for the compost pile.
Branches should be at least an inch thick or more, otherwise they can be easily chopped up for Mother Nature's Salad! This will help us immensely and keep items out of landfill when RIOC chips. No plastics, ornaments or used lumber in the branches please. We have to sort when these mistakes happen.
In addition all the black tumblers are now open for kitchen scraps: fruits, vegetables, rice, bread but no meat or dairy. Bring these items down at any time.
