Because of “tremendous turnout” at city-load Saturdays so far this year, the City of Lawrence has made changes to the Compost Facility’s summer schedule.


There will be no woodchips available until further notice because of limited supplies, according to an update this week from the city.

This Saturday’s event will proceed as scheduled from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., with the exception of woodchips. City-loaded compost will be available for $10 per scoop, and one scoop typically fills a pickup truck bed, according to the city’s website.

But at the next two events, scheduled for July 2 and Aug. 6, the facility will only be open for dropoffs and self-loading of compost, according to the city’s update. “Availability of material is not guaranteed,” the city notes.

The city will communicate information about the scheduled Sept. 3 and Oct. 1 events and availability closer to those dates.

The Wood Recovery and Compost Facility is at 1420 E. 11th St., a few blocks east of 11th Street and Haskell Avenue.
