Due to construction of a new sewer on St. Andrew Street, access to the Compost Site is required to be detoured. The closure of St. Andrew Street in front of the Water Pollution Control Centre begins May 21, 2019 and runs throughout the summer.
The detour is identified on the map attached. Please follow the detour along Scott Road.
Compost can be dropped off at no charge for leaves, grass, and garden waste.
Residents that wish to use plastic bags for leaves and grass would be required to transport the bags to the compost site and debag them themselves. Residents would also be responsible for the disposal of their plastic bags.
There is a small fee for brush. Brush includes tree branches, hedges, shrubs, rose bushes, logs, and stumps. There is no limit on the diameter of the material dropped off at the compost site. If the brush is set out at the curb for collection by the City, then the branches cannot exceed 4 inches in diameter and be no longer than 4 feet in length.
Compost must be in clear or paper bags, or open containers marked on two sides with an ‘X’, no heavier than 48 pounds. Brush must be tied in bundles no longer than 4 feet or in open containers marked on two sides with an ‘X’.
