Now that the snow has melted and spring is officially here, the weekly pick up of compost begins on April 5th and will run through the end of November. Compost materials include leaves, grass, plants and small bushes. All compost should be placed in brown paper bags. Compost placed in plastic bags will go in with the regular trash as the plastic does not disintegrate quickly. Tree limbs and branches should be tied into bundles no more than 4’ in length.
