The Big Dig Scavenger Hunt is going on now through April 11. Find Corey and win a free bag of compost and a chance to win $6,000 in prizes, including a garden makeover.

Gregory from View Ridge and Caroline from Ballard are today’s Big Dig Grand Finals pass winners!

18 passes to the April 14 Big Dig Finals are still up for grabs. Here are today’s clues on where to find Corey the Compostable Apple Core:

Corey Clue: #12: Go to the restaurant located across the street from University House on Stone Way North (*follow the smell of marinara sauce).

Corey Clue #13: This “#1” store in Maple Leaf sells the opposite of software-you’ll only find hammers and nails here.

Corey Clue #14: Go to the corner of HWY 99 & N. 93rd Street where you can grab materials to build a garden shed.

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
