City Compost Site

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are NOT collecting tickets.  We will have an attendent on site to just make sure everything coming in the gate is allowed.  He will also be writing down license plate numbers in case we do have anything that isn't allowed being dropped off.  Please proceed down the road slowly so he can record this.  Thank you for your anticipated cooperation!  


The City compost site is open to residents and non-residents for disposal of yard waste and tree limbs.  Located east of the City ball fields at 8th and Clay Streets.


The compost site will close for the season after Saturday, December 5th.  That will be the last day to drop any compost.

Hours of Operation:

Monday - 12:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.

Tuesday/Thursday - 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.

Saturday - 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.


*You must have a ticket to utilize this site.  Tickets can be purchased at City Hall during regular business hours, Monday through Friday 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.  If you are unable to make the trip to City Hall during these hours, please mail a check to City Hall with a note indicating what the check is for and where you would like the tickets mailed to.  We would be happy to send these out to you.

Ticket Price – $2.50

Outside City Limits Tickets Price - $5.00

*Each ticket will be good for one pick-up or car load of grass clippings, leaves or tree branches.  If you have more than one load you will need additional tickets.  If you have something larger than a standard pick-up or car load you will need additional tickets. 

* Loads must be separated so material can be dropped off properly; tree branches cannot be mixed in with the grass clippings and leaves.

*Tree branches must be no longer than 8 feet in length.  No stumps of any kind will be accepted.

*No trash of any kind will be left at the sight.  All trash bags and other materials will need to be removed with the person dropping off the yard waste.

*The person delivering the yard waste will be responsible for unloading their vehicle themselves following the instruction of the compost site attendant.

*Tickets damaged beyond easy recognition will not be honored at the compost site.

*Duplicated tickets will not be allowed.  The tickets are numbered and will be tracked by City Hall and the compost site attendant.


**The compost site rules are subject to change at any time if the City sees a need to do so.
