Composting

The R-Board encourages composting at-home, and offers backyard composting classes through the Central Rappahannock Regional Library.

Backyard Composting 101 

The R-Board offers virtual and in-person backyard composting classes through the Central Rappahannock Regional Library. No need to register. Attend the class in-person, or through Google Meet at the designated class time. The classes will teach you how to compost your food scraps and yard waste, which compost bin might be right for your needs, and how to maximize your compost process. Composting 101 classes are open to everyone, but only residents of the City of Fredericksburg and Stafford County will be able to purchase a composting bin from the R-Board. Earth Machine compost bins are $35 and only available to class participants who are residents of the City of Fredericksburg or Stafford County. Bins are limited to one per person. Please pay cash or make your check out to Stafford County Treasurer.
