SLCgreen - Curbside Compost Program
Curbside Compost (Yard Waste) Program
The City's Compost Program is offered year round to divert compostable yard and vegetative (fruit and vegetable) waste from the city's landfill. Material is delivered to the city landfill compost operation where it is composted.
There is no additional fee for this service. The costs to provide all waste collection services (including garbage, recycling, yard waste, neighborhood cleanup and glass recycling) are included in your monthly garbage fee.
