The City of Merriam looking to inspire residents to enjoy the benefits of composting. Composting enriches soil, helps to retain moisture and reduces the need for chemical fertilizers. The city has partnered with a local Master Gardener to conduct workshop on how leaves, grass and shrubbery trimmings can be turned into a valuable resource for your garden. To help offset resident’s cost, the city will provide a $35 rebate for attending the workshop. Workshop dates and times can be found here.
To further promote composting, the city will provide a rebate of up to $40 to residents that install a compost bin.
Residents that attend a workshop and install a compost bin, can receive a rebate of up to $75.
Applications will be accepted from January 3, 2023 to October 31, 2023.
Applications are reviewed in the order they are received.
