Keep Mobile Beautiful is introducing Mobile to “green” recycling or composting with several public events. With a $20,000 grant from Keep America Beautiful and Lowe’s, Keep Mobile Beautiful built compost bins for 13 community gardens in the Mobile area.

The bins are being used to recycle “green” material most of us throw away like grass clippings, leaves and plant-based food scraps and turn it into compost to fertilize community gardens.

The public is encouraged to learn more and to contribute material for the composting. The following are free public events where you can learn more:
