What do I do with my leaf and yard waste?

Leaves and yard waste can be brought to the City’s Compost Site at 251 North Augusta Rd. The site is open April to November. Leaves and soft-stemmed plants are free to drop-off. Please use reusable containers, paper bags, or de-bag your plastic bags on site. NO weeds or grass clippings please. A small fee applies for brush (starting at $3 per car load; $6 for truck, van, SUV, or trailer >10 ft.; $8 for a car & trailer; $11 for a truck & trailer; and $20 for a trailer >10ft in length or tandem wheels). Don’t forget, you can take home two free wheelbarrows full (approximately 2-3 garbage bags) of compost for FREE per resident per year.
