The Lewis County Master Recycler Composter program run through the Washington State University extension is hosting an open house June 15 at its compost demonstration site at the Central Transfer Station.
The event, which will run from 10 a.m. to noon, will take place near the Solid Waste Utility’s administration office at 1411 S. Tower Ave.
The open house will demonstrate the differences between homemade and store-bought compost bins, display worm compost bins and other composting options, as well as showing how unwanted materials and can be used for new items in the garden. Information will also be available about joining the Master Recycler Composter program.
“Bring your composting and recycling questions,” said Melanie Case, recycling program coordinator for the Lewis County Solid Waste Utility. “The volunteers have lots of trouble-shooting tips for composting and knowledge about recycling in our local area.”
