Compost event to support local charities Oct. 18-23, 2021

From Oct. 18 – 23, Niagara Region residents can collect one to three 20-litre bags of compost per vehicle per day during regular business hours (while quantities last).

In exchange for the compost, residents are required to donate non-perishable food items or cash in support of Fort Erie COPE (Community Outreach Program – Erie), Grimsby Benevolent Fund, HOPE Centre /  Goodwill Niagara (Women's Place), and Project SHARE, to help those in our community who need assistance. Expired food items will not be accepted.

The attendants will use their discretion to determine the number of compost bags given to each resident in exchange for their donation to a maximum of three bags per vehicle per day.

Residents are required to follow public health measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19:

  • ​Maintain physical distancing by staying two metres (six feet) away from others
  • Wear a mask
  • Confirm expiration date with attendant and place non-perishable food items in the designated box
  • Deposit cash donations in cash box (staff cannot offer change)
