Sale Of Leaf Compost In Hickory Continuing

Leaf compost is still for sale 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 a multitude of benefits for landscaping and gardening. It provides nutrients for plants and vegetables, controls weeds, conserves water, prevents erosion, and increases soil texture and fertility.

Hickory’s leaf compost costs $25.00 per 3-yard scoop (full-size pickup truck load), or $8.33 per cubic yard. Special bulk pricing is also available. For more information, please call the Hickory Public Services Department at 828-323-7500.
