The Composting Facility is located on 14 acres at the Alpha Ridge Landfill and is designed to compost yard trim, food scraps and manure in aerated, covered piles. The compostable material comes from residents and schools participating in our Feed The Green Bin program. This is supplemented by material directly hauled by residents and contractors to Alpha Ridge. The original pilot facility started accepting material in March 2013.

The tour group will meet at Compost Phase 2.
