Pricing & Rules
Our compost area is SELF SERVICE due to Covid safety concerns. Upon arriving at the site, empty compost in designated bin and place fee in money box next to bin
There is a $2 fee to drop-off up to 5 gallons of compost.
*This $2 fee is separate from the $2 entrance fee that covers common recycling & hard-to- recycle. You do NOT need to pay the entrance fee to bring compost only.
Masks/face coverings are required to visit our sites. Please adhere to social distancing guidelines and stay 6 feet apart from staff and visitors
A note on COMPOSTABLE BAGS: While we are able to accept them, our compost stream is much cleaner without them. We ask that you use them sparingly.
Comspostable and biodegradable bags are not the same thing.
We DO NOT accept biodegradable bags.
