Compost Site

The City of Douglas wants to encourage citizens to pick up FREE compost at the City of Douglas compost site, located at 1009 Wendell Sears Road.  The Compost Site is open Monday through Friday, 8:30am-11:30am and 1:30pm - 4pm.  The compost is recognized by the EPA as a soil amendment comparable to potting soil that people would get at home and garden stores.  It is extensively tested for bacteria and metals to ensure the safety of its users.  It is safe for all garden applications and will not “burn up” plants like granular fertilizers. 

Composting by the City of Douglas is saving the City money and helping to keep the Earth green.  Composting is a green alternative to land filling all the bio-solid and leaf and limb waste from the City.  Annually, composting keeps nearly 3,500 tons of material out of our local landfills.  Also, it saves the city nearly $1 million in landfill fees and is free to the public.

The site is open year round, and compost is ready for pickup, while supplies last.  For more information or to schedule compost pickup, please call 912-389-3452.
