Compost now available for purchase from City

The City of Fayetteville Solid Waste and Recycling Division has announced that compost is screened and ready for distribution to the public.

Beginning today, Tuesday, Oct. 6, compost will be sold to Fayetteville residents at the compost site located at 1708 S. Armstrong Road. Operating hours are Tuesday and Thursday from 8:00 am until 3:00 pm. The site will also be open Saturday, Oct. 10 from 8:00 am until noon but beginning in November, the Saturday hours will be reduced to the first Saturday of each month.

You must be a Fayetteville resident to purchase compost and will be asked to present a recent water bill to prove residency.

The price for the compost will be $20 plus tax per scoop and residents will only be allowed one time through the sale and will be limited to one scoop. Each scoop is two cubic yards and weighs approximately 1,000 pounds.

The compost has once again been certified as “Garden Compost” through the Rodale Organic Gardeners Certification program and has been screened to remove large sticks and other items.
