There is no fee for leaf and yard trimmings drop-off.
How to Drop Off Leaves & Yard Trimmings
Our Yardwaste drop-off is accessible to vehicles from our first entrance on Redmond Rd (860 Redmond Road). Simply follow the signs for Yardwaste drop-off and unload your material. The second gate is exit only.
You may drop off leaves and yard debris in the leaf bunker during business hours. Paper grocery bags and compostable leaf bags (available at hardware stores and garden centers) are acceptable. If using a plastic bag for transport, please empty the contents of the bag and take it with you.
If you have invasive, noxious, or diseased plants: Our composting process involves high enough temperatures to ensure destruction of spores and seeds. Please call 802-503-7926 if you have noxious plants (such as poison ivy, poison parsnip, etc.) so we can handle the material appropriately. 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.
