Get a free Presto Hoop Compost Bin from Keep San Antonio Beautiful

Keep San Antonio Beautiful is offering four 15 minute composting classes on Friday July 10 at their offices at 1940 Grandstand, San Antonio TX 78238. (It's in the Alamo Downs business park off of the access road inside Loop 410 north of Culebra.

The classes are at 9:00 AM, 11:00 AM, 1:00 PM and 3:00 PM. No registration or RSVP is needed. Each attendee will receive a free Presto Hoop Compost Bin. I've had a similar bin for many years. It isn't heavy duty but it works fine. One website even recommends it be used as a vertical tower garden.

Keep San Antonio Beautiful established in 1980 is an affiliate of Keep Texas Beautiful and Keep America Beautiful. They partner with government, industry and individuals in projects including Adopt-A-Spot Litter Control, Dial-A-Trailer, Basura Bash, Graffiti Wipeout, Green Team Challenge, Project Re-directory School Competition, and the Alamo Forest Partnership.

If you make it out to one of the workshops and if you pay CPS for your garbage collection you might want to work in a visit to the San Antonio Household Hazardous Waste collection site nearby at 7030 Culebra Road. It is open on Fridays from 7:00 AM to 4:00 PM, and paid for through an addition to your CPS bill. Be sure to bring your CPS bill for identification.

You could even drop off an analog television, or do your good deed for the day by helping out an apartment dweller who doesn't have access to the CPS HHW site and drop off their broken or unwanted TV .
