STATE COLLEGE, Pa (WTAJ) — State College is giving borough residents free compost this summer.

State College Borough will have access to the compost daily between 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. and is available to those who can prove their residency with two forms of identification.

For those interested, go to the State College Municipal building located at 243 South Allen Street and talk to a staff member. You can set your account up Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Those who qualify will be given a code for the gate where they can pick up the compost.

Get daily updates on local news, weather and sports by signing up for the WTAJ Newsletter.

The compost is produced from a residential organics collection program, seasonal leaf collection and grass collection from the surrounding communities.

The State College Borough strives to keep the compost available from April until November but is on a first-come, first-served basis.
