Compost Facility Hours.   The City’s Compost Facility at 1708 S. Armstrong Avenue is open during normal operating hours on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.   The site will be open on Saturday, April 5th and Saturday, April 12th from 8:00 a.m. to noon.  The site is now open the first two Saturdays of each month through October.  Residents of Fayetteville are allowed to drop off brush, leaves or grass during these hours but need to bring a recent water bill showing solid waste charges and proof of residency to drop off yard waste for free.  Commercial landscapers and contractors are allowed to use the site for drop off purposes and normal fees apply.

Compost Distribution.   Screened compost is available at this time until supplies last.  Only Fayetteville residents are allowed to purchase the compost and must show proof of residency through their water bill.  No commercial customers or apartments are allowed to receive compost.  Please bring a copy of a recent water bill showing solid waste charges for proof of residency.  Residents will only be allowed to purchase one scoop for $20 plus tax when the compost is available. One scoop is approximately 2 1/2 cubic yards or enough to fill the bed of a regular size pick-up truck.  Limiting to one scoop allows a chance for most residents to purchase the compost should they desire.

Mulch Distribution.   Mulch will be made available during normal operating hours (see above) while supplies last.  The fee for mulch is $10 per scoop (2 1/2 cubic yards) and is available to anyone.
