2013 Compost Workshop

Composting is one form of recycling that can happen right in your backyard. Catawba Island Township, Sandusky County Park District, Ottawa County Soil & Water Conservation District and the Ottawa, Sandusky, Seneca Joint Solid Waste Management District are sponsoring a Compost Workshop on Wednesday, May 22nd. The Compost Workshop will demonstrate how composting yard waste, food scraps, and other organic materials are used to create a nutrient-rich soil conditioner for yard or garden. 

Pre-registration is required to attend one of two available sessions because of limited space. The pre-registration deadline is Tuesday, May 21. The first session will begin at 10 a.m. and the evening session will begin at 6:30 p.m. There will be a charge of $5 to participate.

Each year the workshop is sponsored in one of the District’s three counties. The 2013 workshop will be featured in Ottawa County at the Catawba Island Township building located at 4822 E. Cemetery Road, Port Clinton. The compost workshop is open to all District residents including all residents of Fostoria and Bellevue. 

“It doesn’t make any sense to throw away materials that can be turned into compost in your backyard,” said Tim Wasserman, Director of the Ottawa, Sandusky, Seneca Joint Solid Waste Management District.  "We want to offer these workshops to educate residents on the proper way to create and maintain a compost pile.”

The workshop will cover basic techniques and essentials of composting.  These aspects include the composting process, materials to place in your pile, common compost problems and other helpful information.

Registered participants will be put into a drawing to win composting and gardening door prizes.  In addition, participants will be provided with snacks and a tour of Catawba Island Township's compost area and Cedar Meadow Nature Preserve.

Residents may pre-register by calling the Ottawa County Soil & Water Conservation District office at 419-898-1595. Information regarding the workshop can also be found on the OSS Solid Waste District’s website at www.recycleoss.org. or on Facebook at Ottawa Sandusky Seneca Green Recycling Scene or on Twitter by searching: OSS Solid Waste @Aim2BGreen. For more information call the District's main office at 419-334-7222 or toll-free at 1-888-850-7224.
