Public Notice – Change in Hours for Municipal Compost Site

The Town of Smiths Falls has announced new hours for the municipal Compost Site for the month of May.

Originally the Compost Site was scheduled to open on Saturdays beginning May 9. In an effort to spread out visits and contain the spread of COVID-19, the Compost Site will now be open Wednesdays from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m., and Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. during the month of May.

The Compost Site is located on Highway 43 beside Hillcrest Cemetery, and is available for residents who wish to dispose of leaves, grass clippings and brush. Food and kitchen wastes aren’t accepted at this facility. Residents are invited to take away nutrient rich compost, while supplies last.

Drivers accessing the Compost Site will be required to show proof of residency and are asked to follow directions from site attendants prior to exiting their vehicles to offload leaf and yard waste materials.
