Do you have yard trimmings or food scraps?
We take food scraps, soiled paper, leaves, branches, grass and other compostable material.  As a NRWS/NCRWS customer, you can use your brown compost cart. Place it curbside on your regular garbage service day. For larger loads, contact us and order a yardwaste debris box. To drop off yard trimmings, go to our facility off Hwy 29 at 820 Levitin Way. Call 255-5200 for additional service information.


What happens to your yard trimmings and food scraps?
The compostable material collected is produced into organic compost.  This high quality soil amendment is used to enrich the soil of farms, vineyards, yards, and gardens…closing the loop locally and sustainably.  Click here for more information.
