The Solid Waste Agency of Northern Cook County (SWANCC) is sponsoring two upcoming workshops for residents that live in a SWANCC-member community. The workshops will explore the science behind mixing yard waste with acceptable food scraps to make a nutrient-rich soil amendment for lawns, gardens, flowers and plants.


Master composter and gardener Lynn Bement will conduct the free workshops from 10 to 11 a.m. on Thursday, July 18, and from 6:15 to 7:15 p.m. on Thursday, Aug. 15, at the SWANCC Glenview Transfer Station, which is located on the east side of Des Plaines River Road, just north of Central Road.

Space is limited and registration is required. To register or for information, contact Mary Allen at mary@swancc.org, or by phone at (847) 724-9205, ext. 204.
