The Water Reclamation District of Greater Chicago (MWRD) is offering compost for no charge to residents, non-profit organizations, and governmental agencies within Cook County. The MWRD’s compost, called EQ Compost, is produced by blending biosolids, woodchips, grass clippings, and leaves.
Residents of Cook County, municipalities, park districts, golf courses, schools, and non-profit organizations can order bulk compost directly or have their landscaping contractor pick it up at the two EQ Compost distribution centers. Free delivery is available for orders of 10 cubic yards or more.
Private businesses can pick up bulk compost at the two EQ Compost distribution centers. Delivery and bulk pick up must be scheduled at least two days in advance.
EQ Compost is also available in 20 lb bags.
