Yard Waste
Although yard waste and other green wastes are not banned from the landfill at the current time, the City strongly encourages all residents to take their green waste to the landfill for use in the compost program. Any green waste that can be diverted from the landfill will not only help in producing compost, but will also save the City valuable landfill space for items that are not compostable or recyclable.

Note: Incidental amounts of weeds (i.e., Canada thistle, yellow sweet clover, and other similar weeds) are acceptable with the items listed above. However, please do not bring large amounts of these materials to the compost facility. Also, please note that there is no charge for clean, garbage-free green waste delivered to the landfill. Any green waste coming into the landfill that is contaminated with garbage will be charged at the current rate.

Food Waste
Aside from vegetables and garden waste, food waste is currently not accepted at the compost facility.

Note: Green waste may also be taken to the Laramie Landfill and dropped at the compost site free of charge any time of year.

Accepted Items
Items accepted in these containers include:
  • Branches
  • Brush
  • Garden waste
  • Grass clippings
  • Cut flowers
  • Fruit fall
  • Hedge clippings
  • Hay
  • Leaves                              
  • Straw
  • Leaves
