Compost is ready-to-use organic matter that is used to replace much-needed nutrients in the soil. Composting works as bacteria and fungi break down organic matter, such as food, leaves, grass, and other plant materials. These tiny creatures occur naturally in our soils and yard waste. The City of Saskatoon’s compost depots provide ideal conditions for these microscopic organisms to do their work. The happier the bugs are, the better the compost piles work to break down your organic material into a valuable soil amendment.
Compost and mulch from Saskatoon's Compost Depots is used to keep Saskatoon parks and community gardens healthy and beautiful.
