Garden Glory compost sale to begin Monday

PORT ANGELES — Garden Glory compost will be offered at a 30 percent discount at the Port Angeles Regional Transfer Station from this coming Monday to April 6.

Garden Glory is a mixture of yard waste and biosolids and has been sold at the compost facility since 2007.

“Now is a great time to apply compost to improve your soil,” city officials said in a Monday announcement.

“You are adding nutrients that will be available to your plants when they begin growing in the spring.”

The compost can be purchased at the transfer station at 3501 W. 18th St. from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday. Visa, Master Card, Discover and checks are accepted.

Beginning Monday, sale prices will be:

• $14 per cubic yard for one to three cubic yards.

• $11.90 per cubic yard for four to 49 yards.

• $11.20 per yard for 50 to 99 yards.

• $10.50 per yard for 100 to 299 yards.

• $9.80 per cubic yard for 300 or more yards.

The yard waste in Garden Glory includes grass, leaves and branches from businesses and residences in Clallam County.

The biosolids come from the treatment of wastewater at the Port Angeles Wastewater Treatment Plant. The biosolids are treated and strictly monitored in accordance with regulatory requirements, city officials said.

The city of Port Angeles participates in a U.S. Composting Council testing assurance program and provides the test results with each purchase.
