Dispose of Yard Waste and Organics

       Bookmark & Share  
Due to recommendations regarding the  Covid virus, Tuthill Farms and Composting is open with modifications.  Our procedure for dropping off organic material is as follows:
-Hours are Monday-Saturday from 7am-5pm.  You may come during this time to drop off bags or loads of material.  
-There is a barricade of signs across the driveway.  Please stop there! No one is checking in customers and we are self serve only for drop off until further notice.  You'll see a black drop box in the middle of the driveway.  Deposit cash or check there.  We recommend that you use gloves for any surface you may contact.  No credit cards allowed.  Further instructions and pictures of load prices are displayed on the barricade.  Contact info is posted there as well in case you have any questions.  
-Even though this is self serve we are still working nearby on site and have surveillance.  Thankfully we can offer a way for you to use our services but we will not tolerate anyone coming in after 5pm or on Sundays.  
-Go to our Map page as we have 2 farms and want to direct you to the right one at 10505 Tuthill Road.
