Wood Waste Disposal

Wood waste is essential to the composing process. The Neches Compost Facility accepts wood waste material and yard trimmings free of charge from the general public, helping you to avoid costly disposal fees. Donated materials are greatly appreciated and help keep product prices low.

Materials are only accepted during the posted hours of operation and the public must report to the yard attendant, who will assist you with unloading. Please use the “Public Sales” entrance, labeled on the map.
