One year when I went I met a dumptruck with the name of a local landscape and lawn care company on the side pulling out fully loaded with compost.

Is this compost safe? I always wonder about pesticides and such from peoples lawn clippings that go into the compost.

I heard it's mixed with runoff from the snow that melted from treated streets.
