Edward Golson Compost Event

Earth Day 2019 marked the final Edward Golson compost event for the City of Bay City.

We would like to thank all its participants for 25 amazing years!

Due to changes in composting regulations, the City of Bay City, no longer operates its own compost site. We will continue to investigate ways of bringing this operation back in house and offer compost to our residents once again.
