Compost Program

The compost areas located at the Town Park are for use exclusively by residents located within the Town limits. This does not include individuals located in the County and have a Rossville mailing address. Any yard waste, such as leaves, tree limbs, and grass clippings should be taken to the Park. The compost area is located on the south end of the Town Park. Easy access to the compost area is off N. East St at E. Ramey St. One area is for tree limbs, sticks, and bushes. The other area is for leaves, old flowers, straw, and grass clippings.

Please empty the containers or bags you have brought your items in and take the containers or bags home with you. We will not accept any trash, carpet, furniture, or building materials such as roofing, concrete, or lumber at this location.
