Compost and Yard Waste Pickup

March 31, 2020

Compost has arrived and is currently available at Harding Park, Martin Road Park, Wilson Park, Geary Park, the Department of Public Works yard, and in the parking lot of the Kulick Community Center.

Given the current COVID-19 outbreak, you are asked to bring your own shovel and maintain appropriate distance (at least 6 feet) from others while loading compost and follow the CDC guidelines for proper personal hygiene. If you feel sick, please do not visit the compost sites.

Yard waste pickup will begin the week of April 6. Yard waste—including grass clippings, leaves, small sticks, and weeds—will be collected weekly on your regular trash day. Yard waste should be placed in either a reusable container with a Ferndale Yard Waste Compost label or paper kraft bags.
