The Department of Public Services has screened, cured compost available for Madison Heights residents, free-of-charge... We know how it is in Michigan, once the weather gets nice, we all jump right into our gardening! The compost bin is located outside the DPS facility at 801 Ajax Drive. At the circle drive, veer right into the parking lot outside the gate; the bin is in the parking lot. Please do not enter the gate unless going to the Animal Shelter.
Compost is first-come, first-served. Bring a container and shovel to load. We receive approximately five loads of compost, typically through the month of May, and while we do the best we can to keep the bin stocked, it goes fast, and there may be periods of time where none is available. Wood chips will be available in this location when the compost is exhausted for the season.
