New grant provides compost kits to purchase

A 2019 grant (funded by the St. Louis County Department of Public Health utilizing County Landfill surcharge funds) will allow us to provide residents the option to purchase composting kits for $25. The kits are first come, first served and the program will be promoted until the bins are gone. To participate, and receive a bin, you must fill out an application that will require proof of residency, name, address, phone number, and email information. Applications will be available in paper at City Hall or online at Free composting classes will be offered by the City to purchasers of the kits. These will be scheduled and posted online at a future date.

Chesterfield Parks, Recreation and Arts will also use this opportunity to reach out to local area schools to provide information about composting, the difference it can make and the impact it could leave on their environment.
