Community compost fires up


West Marin Compost will begin accepting clean residential green waste at its drop-off site at 5575 Nicasio Valley Road this Saturday, December 10. The site will be open on weekdays from noon to 4 p.m. and Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. The tipping fee is $25 per cubic yard. No noxious weeds, animal waste or other non-green materials are accepted. The project is also offering a December special to West Marin arborists and tree service professionals: a $5 per cubic yard tipping fee for all ground green and chipped tree material. A tipping fee discount is available for anyone who donates an old pitchfork, which will be used to construct a new welded gate at the site. In addition, dumpster delivery and pick-up service to stables and equine facilities for equine waste and bedding materials is available. For more information call (415) 662.9849 or visit
