Learn the Do’s and Dont’s of Composting at Free City Event

Published on Mar 20, 2023

The City of Pasadena is set to host a Community Compost Hub Training event on Tuesday, March 28 from 6 to 7 p.m. at Villa Parke, located at 363 E. Villa St. below the soccer field. This training aims to educate the public on how to make clean, healthy compost for their community, which is a simple and effective way to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and help stop climate change.

Attendees will learn what items can be composted, including fruit and vegetable scraps, coffee grounds, egg shells, green leaves, grass trimmings, old flowers, mulch wood chips, dead leaves, sawdust, twigs, newspaper, and shredded paper, among others. 

On the other hand, items such as plastic, dog poop, and dairy products, including cheese, should not be composted.

The training will also include step-by-step instructions on how to compost properly and will showcase the Pasadena Compost Hub, which is part of the city’s Zero Waste Pasadena 2040 initiative. Attendees will be encouraged to register for the event by calling (626) 744-7311 or emailing

For those who require accommodations or have accessibility concerns, contact or call (626) 744-7311. By attending the Community Compost Hub Training event, attendees can make a positive impact on the environment and contribute to a greener and more sustainable future.
