Sand and wood chips are also available to residents at no charge on a seasonal basis. The compost site is open on Saturdays from 9 a.m. - 3 p.m., starting in April until mid-December, weather permitting.

Christmas Tree Recycling & Styrofoam Collection


Residents bring Christmas trees and styrofoam for collection during designated dates in January each year.
