• The city will load trucks and trailers. City cannot load trucks with ladder racks.
• $10 per bucket load, equivalent to two cubic yards. CASH only.
• Self-loading small quantities (small bag, plastic tote, box) free.
• 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 for the citizens of Lawrence.

The City’s compost is made from the weekly curbside collection of residential yard waste, which includes grass, leaves, garden pruning, and small woody waste. Due to the length of the composting process and the biological changes that occur, 99 percent of all chemicals have dissipated prior to public distribution. City staff tests the compost for levels of ammonia and carbon dioxide; tests are also completed for pH and salinity.

The compost and woodchips are not intended for commercial applications, but rather for the citizens of Lawrence. For residential use only. Woodchips may contain Emerald Ash Borer. Transportation within counties quarantined for Emerald Ash Borer is okay. Do not transport woodchips outside of the listed quarantined counties: Douglas, Jefferson, Johnson, Leavenworth, and Wyandotte.
