Compost Pickup for 2012 begins April 2nd.

If you have already placed your compost materials out to the curb for collection, please remove them and place back out for collection beginning the week of April 2nd.

Collection will occur weekly on your regularly scheduled solid waste collection day.

The City of Plymouth provides a composting disposal services for all City residents.  This is at no additional cost to residents and is used as a way to dispose of grass clippings, leaves, and other yard waste.

The recommended way to dispose of your grass clippings, leaves, and other yard waste is to mulch the material.  When these materials are mulched and left on the lawn, the natural waste recycling system is put to work.  Mulching also saves you time, money and energy.  The grass clippings also work as a natural fertilizer and they DO NOT CAUSE THATCH.

Composting materials are no longer accepted in landfills and cannot be collected in plastic bags.

The City of Plymouth requires all compost materials be placed in a 32-gallon container marked “COMPOST ONLY” or Kraft-type brown paper bags specifically used for yard waste.  Containers or bags must not exceed 50 lbs. and must be manageable by one individual.  Dirt is often mistaken for compost.  This is not true since dirt is in its primary state.

CONDITIONS WHICH COMPOST IS NOT ACCEPTED: yard waste mixed with solid waste or recyclables, dirt rocks, and/or sod.

Schedule: April 2 - November 28
