The Bureau of Sanitation's Rosalia Rojo and Jim Kurz, in front of the public Zoo Doo pile. Dig in! Jackson Musker

We’ve got a dirty little secret. There's a new FREE compost giveaway site in LA, and its mix contains the creme de la creme of composting: "Zoo Doo" from the LA Zoo. Off-Ramp correspondent Jackson Musker gets the scoop (okay, several scoops) from LA Bureau of Sanitation’s Rosalia Rojo and Jim Kurz. (Read on for directions and operating hours of the new giveaway site...)

Jim Kurz of the Bureau of Sanitation informs us that the Mission Road Compost site is open on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9-5, except for a 1PM-2PM lunch hour. There is no limit on the amount of compost you can take home with you.
