CURBSIDE COMPOST RUNS FROM MAR 30TH THROUGH DEC 4TH 

Compost 

            Compost is garden waste, grass clippings, hay/straw, leaves, pruning debris, bushes/shrubs and tree branches.  The compost program does not accept animal waste, dirt, food scraps, pumpkins, roots/root balls, sod, stumps, vines or any landscaping material (gravel, garden wall, stone, mulch, wood chips etc.).  

Branches are to be cut down to 4 ft. or less and should be no larger than 3 in. in diameter.  Branches should be put into small bundles and tied with rope or twine.  You may put out up to 10 bundles a week.

You may use compost bags or garbage cans for compost disposal.  The limit for compost collection is ten (10) compost bags or five (5) garbage cans, with no bag or can weighing more than 50 lbs.  We DO NOT accept compost in cardboard boxes or plastic garbage bags.

Compost is picked up the same day as regular trash.  A separate truck picks up compost.  Your compost should be separated from your regular household trash by 4 ft.  Mixed compost and trash will not be picked up.
