Compost Site Relocation

The Town voted to relocate the current compost site at the November 2019 Special Town Meeting. The DPW collected RFP's from interested compost service providers through June 10, 2021. This page will be updated as information changes and new information becomes available. 

April 2022 Status Update: A contract has been set between the Town and Black Earth to relocate and build a new compost facility next to the transfer station on upper Pine Street. Preliminary work is expected to begin at the new site in August 2022 with the majority of work taking place during the Fall 2022. During this time transfer station hours may be effected and altered. More information to come.
