The City collects compostable materials curbside on the same day as your garbage collection at a cost of $4 per month for the months of April - October. A special green compost cart is required and one can be purchased through the city at a cost of $70. If compost collection service is discontinued and later you decide to re-establish service, a fee of $20 plus the $4 per month charge will be assessed to your account. Compost carts will be collected only street side, no alley collection.
