Purchasing Compost

The Greater Lebanon Refuse Authority (GLRA) has developed a compost operation that allows county residents to bring in green waste and clean wood for a reduced fee, in return they can buy plant bedding and wood mulch at a low price.

Accepted Materials
The GLRA accepts leaves, grass clippings, tree trimmings, shrubbery clippings and branches as green waste. The Greater Lebanon Refuse Authority also recycles Christmas trees at the appropriate season. This green waste is then composted at the GLRA Compost Facility which produces a high quality plant bedding.  When available, Plant Bedding can be purchased by residents for $12 per cubic yard. Plant Bedding  WILL NOT be available in 2016.

The GLRA also accepts wood pallets, untreated and unpainted raw lumber,  as clean wood. Clean wood is also composted at GLRA's Compost Facility to produce a decorative top cover to be used around lawns, homes and on flower beds.  Wood mulch may also be purchased by residents for $12 per cubic yard.

Wood Mulch for Purchase
ONLY wood mulch is available for purchase in 2016. The price is $12 per cubic yard. A tarp is required and loads must be covered.
