Yard waste to be disposed of, must be clean of waste and debris.

Free disposal of yard waste is only for homeowners and renters, not contractors for hire.
The finished compost is sold for $10.00 per cubic yard and wood chips can be purchased for $3.00 per cubic yard to help defer costs. Please call the transfer station office at 385-5433 to check availability of compost and wood chips.
