City Compost Site

The city provides a compost facility where city residents can bring their yard waste. The compost site is located at 901 West Locust Street (near the River Falls School Bus Garage).


Please assist by self-monitoring the site, as hours will be severely curtailed if forced to have an attendant on duty to monitor site usage.

  • Allowable material is limited to yard waste and brush (no stumps).
  • Use good housekeeping and do not bring unwanted or banned materials to the site.
  • Remember to remove material from plastic and other non-compostable bags. A dumpster is provided for disposal of such non-compostable bags for your convenience.
  • Use of this site is for city residents only.
  • Compost and woodchips are available at the site for city residents on a first come, self-serve basis.


The compost site is open seven days a week during daylight hours year round.
