Fortuna is giving away free compost.
During the last week of February, the city is hosting a giveaway of high-quality compost “for beneficial reuse as a soil amendment to your property or place of residence,” according to a Facebook post from the city on Wednesday. You can get up to 2.5 cubic yards, or roughly the load of one full-size pickup truck, per address per year between 9 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. at the facility at 180 Dinsmore Drive.
“Please use the corporation yard entrance (2nd gate past the bridge) when picking up the compost,” the post states. “Vehicles entering the corporation yard can proceed directly to the loading area by following the signs.”
Everyone who gets the compost will have to sign a release of liability form, and drivers have to have tarps for covering the compost while they’re transporting it.
“Tarps are NOT provided by the City,” the post states. “No pickups with canopies will be loaded by City staff.”
