Compost / Mulch

The compost facility is located on Stinson Drive, off Airport Road (behind the Danville Regional Airport and beyond the closed landfill). Yard waste and leaves are ground up creating 10,000 tons of compost/mulch annually.

Drop Off / Pick Up

City of Danville residents who pay the full refuse fee can utilize the facility for dropping off yard waste. Anyone not paying the full refuse fee will be charged $10 a cubic yard for disposal. No household trash or lot-clearing material accepted, only household yard waste.

Anyone can pick up compost/mulch at no charge. If available, the front-end loader, which is onsite to feed the grinder, will load your vehicle. If a loader is not available, residents are free to load mulch themselves. Wood is also available for firewood.
