The city is aware that the owner of the privately-operated compost site in Woodbury has decided to close their business. While the city would like to see convenient access to yard waste services continue for its residents, it is not in a position purchase or lease the property to operate a yard waste facility.
City staff has had conversations with Washington County and has identified that Washington County is best suited to take the lead on evaluating the yard waste needs of county and city residents. Washington County is considering options for the on-going operation of the facility.
