The City's Parks Recreation & Waterfront Department offers free compost for Berkeley residents on the last Saturday of each month from February to October, weather permitting. Mechanical loading is no longer provided. Pick-up trucks must tarp their loads. Self serve. Please bring your Berkeley ID, shovels, containers and safety gear. First come, first served.

Compost used for the free compost giveaway is a safe organic-certified product. Green waste from Berkeley's transfer station is transported to a Central Valley processing plant. Careful monitoring of the carbon to nitrogen ratio, CO2, temperature, moisture as well as daily turning results in a highly aerobic, microbial compost product.

The compost is located right across the street from the Double Tree by Hilton Hotel at the Berkeley Marina. 200 Marina Boulevard, Berkeley, CA 94710
