There is no fee for leaf and yard trimmings drop-off.
Our leaf bunker is accessible to vehicles from our first entrance on Redmond Rd. Simply drive up to the bunker and unload your material.
If you have invasive, noxious, or diseased plants: Our composting process involves high enough temperatures to ensure destruction of spores and seeds, but we need to take precautions to avoid spreading them prior to the composting process.
Before dumping, please stop in the office and notify a staff member so that we can handle the material appropriately.
Bag the leaves or yard trimmings, ideally in a paper grocery bag or a compostable leaf bag (available at hardware stores and garden centers). Exercise extra caution when handling noxious plants, the sap from which can cause severe burns or blindness. If using plastic bags, you MUST empty the plant out of the bag and dispose of the bag yourself.
