Composting is closed until April, 2019. Please do not bring compost until April: We are full up, and there will be no room for more until the current mass has broken down over the winter. Thanks to everyone who took part in the composting program this year!

Please dump as close to the pile as possible. Don’t spread out your loads. Thank you.
