The more Coreys you find, the better your chances of winning a pass to the Big Dig Finals on April 14—and a chance to dig up $6,000 worth of fabulous prizes, including a $3,000 garden makeover!

The Big Dig is part of Compost Days, celebrating Seattle’s composting success. In 2011, Seattle residents helped divert 125,000 tons from the landfill by composting their food scraps and yard waste in their curbside food and yard carts and backyard compost bins.

Now through April 30, Seattle residents can get these great Compost Days deals:
• Buy two bags of compost, get third free
• 35% off kitchen food scrap containers
• 15% off bulk compost
