Yard Waste

The City strongly encourages all residents to take their green waste to the landfill for use in the compost program. Any green waste that can be diverted from the landfill will not only help in producing compost, but will extend the life of the landfill. 

*Note: Incidental amounts of weeds (i.e., Canada thistle, yellow sweet clover, and other similar weeds) are acceptable. However, please do not bring large amounts of these materials to the compost facility. Also, please note that there is no charge for clean, garbage-free green waste delivered to the landfill. Any green waste coming into the landfill that is contaminated with garbage or over 18'' in diameter will be charged at the current rate.

Food Waste
Aside from vegetables and garden waste, food waste is currently not accepted at the compost facility.

Call the the Solid Waste Division at (307) 721-5279 to report a full container or to report any illegal dumping of non-acceptable items within the container.
