The City of Philadelphia offers two different types of composting workshops.
Choose from a one-hour composting workshop that covers the basics of composting.
Or, take a two-hour Recycling Through Composting workshop.
Upcoming One-hour Composting Workshops:
Call Philadelphia County Cooperative Extension to register for this free program.
Pre-registration is required! Call 215-471-2200
Upcoming Recycling Through Composting Workshops:
Residents interested in attending a compost-training workshop must pre-register.
Call (215) 686-5444, extension 2.
Anyone is welcome to attend as a guest and receive training and a manual, but only pre-registered Philadelphia residents presenting appropriate identification will be eligible to receive a back yard composter. If demand exceeds supply, priority will be given to the earliest registrants; the date on which the workshop is held does not affect availability.
