Brightside/Waste Management of Kentucky’s Premium Compost Sale Returns March 21 and April 25, 2015

March 19, 2015

Brightside’s bi-annual compost sale and fundraiser will be held Saturday, March 21 and Saturday, April 25 from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. at the Outer Loop Recycling and Disposal Facility located at 2673 Outer Loop, Louisville, Kentucky 40219.

Brightside’s community partner, Waste Management of Kentucky, generously donated the organic, plant-based compost again this spring.  All proceeds from the sale will benefit Brightside’s beautification and sustainability efforts. 

Compost can be purchased by the bag or by the scoop.  Fees are $2.50 per bag, or $35.00 per Bobcat scoop.  A discount coupon is available by visiting the Brightside webpage at http://louisvilleky.gov/government/brightside/brightside-and-waste-management-kentuckys-compost-sale.

Brightside’s premium compost is a mixture of leaves, chipped tree limbs, and yard waste from various cities, composted into an earthy, well mixed organic amendment that any home gardener would be happy to use on their garden. The greatest value of compost is in the organic matter, which can act as a nutrient buffer and improve the soil structure for a year or two after application. 

Compost will:

  • Keep weeds down
  • Keel the soil cool
  • Feed the lower soil
  • Provide a more aesthetically pleasing landscape
  • Add nutrients to the soil while increasing beneficial biological activity
  • Improve soil texture and pH levels

Registration for Brightside’s Spring Community-Wide Cleanup (April 18) will be available at the compost sale. 

Brightside has been keeping Louisville clean and green now for over 25 years. Our accomplishments were made possible with support from our donors, sponsors and volunteers.
