Free Compost for Residents and Community Organizations

Compost Hubs For Residents

Compost Hubs are sites that offer compost for residents to take for free, and provide educational resources on making and using compost. This service is free to all residents, and is not restricted to those living in Alameda County or in specific cities. Make sure to bring your own fillable containers. Compost Hubs are located at urban farms and spaces managed by community organizations, so make sure to check in and learn about the other services and volunteer opportunities they offer! StopWaste will continue to update this list as new Compost Hubs open.
