Compost Site

The Compost Site is located next to the Public Works facility at 1100 Bailey Road. 

The Compost Site is for Newport Residents ONLY and is open from the second Saturday in April and closes for the season on the second Saturday of November.  Hours of operation are as follows:

Wednesday 3:30 p.m. - 6:30 p.m. 
Friday 3:30 p.m. - 6:30 p.m. 
Saturday 9:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. 

The compost site is closed on Federal holidays.

Grass, leaves and brush are $5 per vehicle or trailer load.  Brush may be no more than 6" in diameter.  Root balls and stumps are not allowed.  As the compost site is only open to Newport residents, please provide a photo ID or a current utility bill indicating your Newport address. 

Please note, plastic bags are not accepted at the compost site.  If you choose to bag yard and organic waste, compostable bags are accepted.  This reduces processing costs and enhances the quality of the finished compost, as the amount of plastic being sent to the landfills is greatly reduced. You may also drop off loads of unbagged yard / organic waste.
