    Learn Backyard Composting 101 (Free Seminar)

    Learn Backyard Composting 101 at Upcoming Free Seminars Scheduled Throughout Cuyahoga County.


    Composting-made-easy is the theme of the Cuyahoga County Solid Waste District's 2018 composting seminars and bin sales taking place at local municipalities throughout the spring and summer.


    The informative seminars are designed to teach residents how to properly compost yard waste and food scraps in their backyards while offering low-cost compost bins for sale. Backyard composting helps reduce the amount of organic waste sent to landfills while creating a healthy soil additive that can be used in gardens and landscapes.



    Compost seminars are open to all county residents and registration is required.

    To register for a seminar visit or call (216) 443-3731 ☎.


    What is compost? Compost consists of organic materials derived from plants and some animal material that has been decomposed largely through aerobic decomposition (with oxygen). The process of composting is simple and is practiced by individuals in their homes, farmers on their land and by industries and cities through contracts with composting businesses.


    Compost is rich in nutrients. It is used in gardens, landscaping, horticulture and agriculture. The compost itself is beneficial for the land in many ways, including as a soil conditioner, a fertilizer to add vital humus or humic acids, and as a natural pesticide for soil. In ecosystems, compost is useful for erosion control, land and stream reclamation and wetland construction.


    The following items are available for purchase by cash or check only:

    Wishing Well Composter - $50.00
    Ultimate Dirt Machine Digester - $50.00
    Yard Butler (aeration tool) - $20.00

    Brunch on the Lake with Chad Pregracke


    On June 2, 2019, we invite to join us for a wonderful June brunch at the exclusive, members-only Shoreby Club in Bratenahl with featured speaker Chad Pregracke, a recipient of CNN’s Hero of the Year Award (2013) who has received international acclaim for his efforts to clean up America’s rivers.


    The event will be held outdoors under a gorgeous, open-air tent with breathtaking views of Lake Erie.


    Location: Shoreby Club – 40 Shoreby Drive, Bratenahl, OH


    Join PHASTAR Corporation for a wonderful June brunch at the exclusive, members-only Shoreby Club in Bratenahl with featured speaker Chad Pregracke, a recipient of CNN’s Hero of the Year Award (2013) who has received international acclaim for his efforts to clean up America’s rivers.


    The event will be held outdoors under a gorgeous, open-air tent with breathtaking views of Lake Erie.


    Mr. Pregracke was selected to speak at the fundraiser because of our shared mission to make the world a better place.  His message and his life’s work is particularly timely with Cleveland celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Cuyahoga River fire this June. That infamous 1969 incident led to the creation of the Clean Water Act. Fifty years later, the Cuyahoga River has made a remarkable turn around and Cleveland now celebrates a vibrant boating community and boasts numerous recreational and competitive activities on the river and Lake Erie.


    The brunch fundraiser is designed to increase awareness and support of the PHASTAR mission, and to provide the local community with an opportunity to learn more about PHASTAR’s initiatives and programs.
