Backyard Compost Workshop 
Tuesday March 28, from 6:30 - 8:45 p.m.
Chandler TechShop
249 E. Chicago St.   

Composting 101 - Instructor Kirti Mathura
Come learn the process of turning yard waste, organic food scraps and degradable recyclables into vital nutrients for your garden soil. Compost supports plant growth, helps build resistance and tolerance to disease and creates a more absorbent soil. It also reduces the need to water as frequently as well as the need for commercial soil amendments and chemical fertilizers.
Register online here
The workshop is free of charge to Chandler utility customers, but advanced registration is required as space is limited.  Registration is available online or by phone. For more information, please contact Solid Waste Services at 480-782-3510 or email us at
