Policy changes regarding yard debris and compost:

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.
