Trash, Recycling & Compost


The compost site is located at W12000 620th Avenue. From the east side city limits (Hwy10), go 1.5 miles east. Turn left (north) on 620th Avenue and go approximately 0.8 miles to the compost driveway on the left (north) side of the road. The compost site is open seasonally. Efforts are made to open early spring and remain open until just before the firearms deer hunting season. Hours vary throughout the season.  Give us a call, see our City's calendar, our City's  websites homepage or our Facebook page for current hours.  

This is a free service for City Residents. Anyone who lives outside of the City limits (Oak Grove and Clifton Townships) need to purchase a compost pass at city hall. Those passes are $15.00 for the season.


The city has contracted with Tennis Sanitation to pick up trash and recycling for all single family, 2 family, and 3 family residences.  If you would like to start or change your service please contact Tennis at the information to the right.

 On your pick-up day:

  • Please have all your materials placed curbside by 6:30 am
  • The front of the cart (where the lid opens) should face the street
  • Trash and recycling should be placed on the opposite side of the driveway or at least 3 feet away from all other objects
