Reduced Prices To Be Offered On Compost In City Of Hickory

The City of Hickory is offering reduced pricing on leaf compost during the end of Summer sale. Leaf compost is now available for just $10 per three-yard scoop (full-size pickup truck load) at the City of Hickory’s Yard Waste Facility on Cloninger Mill Road.

The facility is currently open for compost sales on Fridays and Saturdays, from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. The hours will remain the same while supply is available. The leaf compost is made from leaves and yard waste collected by Solid Waste crews throughout the year that are then ground into useable material for your landscape.

Leaf compost has many benefits for landscaping and gardening. It provides nutrients for plants and vegetables, controls weeds, conserves water, prevents erosion, and increases soil texture and fertility.
