Minimizing Organic Waste with Education and Recycling (M.O.W.E.R. Program)
The M.O.W.E.R. Program helps Folsom meet its recycling goals by reducing organic waste that may otherwise go to the landfill. Residents can sign up for one of the workshops where they can learn how to recycle their yard waste through composting and grasscycling. At the end of each workshop, participants receive their choice of a compost bin at a discounted rate of $30 or a mulching lawnmower rebate of $25. All mowers must not include a bag at the time of purchase.
All workshops are held at Lew Howard Park and last approximately one hour. MOWER Program bins and rebates are only available to one per household, and participation is limited to Folsom residency.
There are no additional workshops scheduled for 2014; however, we will schedule more workshops if there is adequate demand. Use the link above or call if you would like to be notified if a new workshop is added. Please check back early next year for a list of 2015 workshop dates!
