Bring your bucket to Newport Avenue Market this Saturday and get some free compost.  The Market, along with Deschutes Recycling is hosting the free giveaway for the second time.

 

Spokesperson Allyn Jeans says the Market began composting all the produce, food and floral scraps that they couldn't sell and have found their trash has been reduced by about 60%.

 

She says the giveaway is to help people learn more about composting.  "I think the big thing was just seeing the change in our habits and really cutting down on waste. And seeing a product come full circle, allowing customers to see, and even employees see that process."

 

Jeans says the event begins at 10 a.m. Saturday and ends when all the compost is gone.  You must bring your own 5 gallon bucket for the compost.
