What is in the Compost Mix

How is the Compost Mix Made?


The compost mix that is used here in Fayetteville consists of all the yard waste that is collected through the yard waste curbside program and other grass and leaves brought into the site by the public.

Ever-Changing Mix


This mix is ever changing depending on the time of year. In the early months of the year, the mix is primarily dead tree limbs. In the spring and summer, the mix consists largely of grass clippings, along with brush and other clippings. In the fall, the mix consists of a large dose of leaves along with a little amount of grass clippings.
