Our composting program allows residents to recycle their yard trimmings into mulch. It becomes a great soil amendment to mix in with your soil before landscaping or planting a garden. We accept compost at two locations to make composting even easier: the Washington County Landfill and the Reuse Center. Both locations will take your compost at no charge. The Reuse Center collected 3,800 lbs. and the Washington County Landfill collected 2,000. We also prepare compost, amounting to 6.4 million pounds every year.
Traditional compost materials include grass clippings, leaves, and small tree branches.
Please don’t mix in palm fronds or oleanders because they do not compost well. Additionally, avoid any raspberry or blackberry brambles, large branches, and any animal products.
You can buy compost from the landfill, subject to availability. Compost is $40.00/ton and woodchips are $25.00/ton.
Compost is available for purchase until 4:30 PM Monday-Friday and 2:30 PM on Saturdays.
The money collected from your recycling is given 100% back to the cities and towns that make up Washington County for community enhancement projects.Contact Us
