City Compost Site


ATTENTION: The compost site will be closed December 1, 2018 due to the impending weather forecast of snow.

We plan to schedule a tree drop off ONLY time following the holidays at the end of the year.

Please keep in mind, the above remaining dates are all weather permitting. Please watch this page or visit our website at www.harrisburgsd.gov for weather closings.


Weather Permitting: If it is raining or has rained within the past 24 hours the site most likely will be closed.  The road leading back to the site gets very muddy and the likelihood of vehicles getting stuck is high)  Check the city website for updates on closures. 

Permitted and acceptable compost items: Leaves, grass, and similar vegetation

Permitted and acceptable wood items: untreated scrap lumber, trees, tree branches, and brush

We are not permitted to accept plastic or paper bags, even though they are marketed as compostable / decomposable

Open ONLY to Harrisburg residents: You MUST have a copy of your water bill to utilize the compost site. If you don’t have a copy of your water bill you may request one at City Hall during regular business hours.
