Reuse and recycling are key components in WLSSD’s work to reduce waste sent to the landfill in our region. You can help “close the loop” with these products and services:
Garden Green® Compost You’ll Dig™ is a premium soil amendment produced year-round at WLSSD’s Organics Composting Facility. Garden Green® can be purchased at several locations; learn more about the benefits of using compost, helpful tips and instructions on proper use of compost, and take a virtual tour of our organics composting site.
Field Green® Biosolids are the nutrient-rich organic product of wastewater treatment at WLSSD. Biosolids contain essential plant nutrients and organic matter and can be recycled as a fertilizer and soil conditioner. WLSSD operates a year-round land application program for agriculture and mining industries.
Take home some treasures from the Materials Recovery Center’s Reuse Area, featuring furniture, housewares and more diverted from the landfill. Spruce up your yard, garden or vehicle with free, usable products from the Household Hazardous Waste Facility & Product Reuse Center, featuring paints, stains, home improvement and automotive chemicals.
Inventory is constantly changing. The reuse centers are open during regular business hours at each facility.
