New Compost Available to Residents September 19

A new release of compost will be available for Norman residents beginning September 19 at the City of Norman’s compost facility. Non-residents may collect compost beginning September 21.

The compost facility will operate extended hours on Saturday, September 19 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Normal operating hours are Monday through Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. and from 8 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on Saturdays.

Mulch is available now. There is no charge for those who load the mulch or compost themselves. If assistance is required, the cost is $10 per scoop, which is approximately three cubic yards or about 2000 pounds.
