Thanks for the free compost

Rot Pot compost offered gratis to District of Mission residents

Editor, The Record:

We’d like to thank the mayor, council and district staff for allowing us to “get the dirt” on Mission.

On April 22, in conjunction with other Earth Day recognition activities, compost from the Rot Pot program was available for free from the Mission Landfill. Judging by the line up when we arrived at 9:45 a.m., the event was very popular.

District staff were efficient in herding us through to a very large mound of dark, rich compost. It was quite amazing to realize this black mini-mountain came from the deposits of our little backyard Rot Pots.

The atmosphere was festive as individuals and families filled their buckets and containers, no doubt thinking of the harvests of flowers and veggies to come. What a great way to celebrate Earth Day. We hope that the compost give away becomes an annual event.

Patrick and Carol O’Brien
