Policy changes regarding yard debris and compost:
- Large loads of "grass only" will be accepted from DMASWA pre-approved customers at no charge.
- Large loads of "wood chips only" will be accepted from DMASWA pre-approved customers at no charge.
- The fee for other yard debris, mixed yard debris and compost can be found on the Pricing page of this website.
No compost is available for sale at this time due to decreased feedstock and internal needs. The compost that is currently being generated will be used on site for storm water improvements, erosion control, and amending soil for vegetative growth. If interested in purchasing compost, check with local landscapers or lawn and garden stores.
