Residents can also call their garbage hauler and setup a weekly compost pickup.

*All three haulers require 24-hour notice for weekly pickup.

The City's compost site typically is:

  • Open during the summer and two weekends in January to accept Christmas trees.
  • Closed around the time most leaves have fallen or when we get a measurable snow in the area.
