WICHITA FALLS (KFDX/KJTL)– It’s that time of year for the annual Wichita Falls compost giveaway!

Residents who participate in the ‘Choose to Reuse’ Program can pick up a free load of compost at the Wichita Falls Organics Facility.

The organics recycling saves money, is environmentally friendly, and creates nutrient-rich compost
that can be used to enhance the soil for lawns and gardens.

The compost giveaway will take place this Saturday, October 3, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Wichita Falls Landfill on Wiley Road.

The compost will be loaded by city employees for residents with a limit of one pickup truck or a 4×8 trailer load per person.
