City to hold compost and woodchip sale this week
The city’s solid waste division will hold a compost and woodchip sale this week.
The sale will take place rain or shine from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Thursday through Saturday at the city’s compost facility, 1420 E. 11th St.
The sale of compost and woodchips is cash only and will cost $10 per bucket load, equivalent to two cubic yards, according to a city news release. Other information on the sale is below:
• The city will load trucks and trailers. The city cannot load trucks with ladder racks.
• Self-loading small quantities are free. Those include a small bag, plastic tote or box.
• Bring a tarp to secure woodchips in trucks and trailers to prevent littering the roadway.
• Compost and woodchips are not intended for commercial applications, but rather are for Lawrence residents.
Compost and woodchips are available beyond this week’s sale as well. Self-loading of compost and woodchips is $10 per truckload and occurs from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. every Saturday from March through mid-December. Residents must bring their own shovel.
