Compost Facility Hours.   The City’s Compost Facility at 1708 S. Armstrong Ave. is open during normal operating hours on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.   The site will be closed on Saturday, September 1st for the Labor Day Holiday but will be open on Saturday, September 8th from 8 am to noon. 

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 currently available but supply is limited.  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 and a half 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.

Free Mulch Distribution.   Mulch will be made available during normal operating hours (see above) while supplies last.  The mulch will be given out for free during the month of September and is available to anyone. 

Transfer Station Hours.    The City’s Transfer Station for the disposal of solid waste is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m., and Saturday from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m., excluding holidays.  The Transfer Station will be closed to the public on Monday, September 3rd for the Labor Day Holiday.  The fees for disposal are $41.30 per ton, $26.30 minimum or $6 per bag.   

Recycling Drop Off on S. Happy Hollow.   The Solid Waste and Recycling Division operates a recycling drop off center located just off 15th St. on S. Happy Hollow Road.  The site is open 24 hours a day / 7 days a week to provide convenient recycling options.  Volunteer groups are being sought to work a few hours on Saturdays to clean the site and provide education to those wishing to recycle.  Please contact Brian Pugh at 718-7685 or bpugh@ci.fayetteville.ar.us for more information.
