Village Compost Site
The Village Compost Site is located next to the Village Garage on North Fulton Street.
Hours for the Compost Site change seasonally.
Winter - Closed/Spring & Summer - 10a.m. - 5p.m./Fall - 10a.m. - 5p.m.
Materials accepted include: garden debris, grass clippings, leaves and branches. We do NOT accept trees, only branches. If you bring debris in plastic bags, please be sure to take the bags home with you.
Residents who remove trees from their property or have them removed must make arrangements for the trees to be taken to an acceptable site for disposal. Residents are permitted to bring branches from tree trimming or storm damage to the Village Compost Site.
Signs are posted at the site to direct you where to put your composting materials. Please note especially the direction branches need to be placed in the pile. Anyone is free to take chips or compost at any time.
The Compost Site is ONLY for the use of Village of Homer residents. If you observe anyone who is a resident of another municipality, or who is a commercial landscaper or trash hauler, please note the license plate number or any identifying information and report them to the Police Department at 749-2022.
