The City of Sanford Compost Facility will reopen to the public with standard operating hours on Monday, April 26.
The facility, which is located at 601 E. Fifth Street, will be open from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday. The facility closes for lunch from 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m. each day.
Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the City of Sanford has established a reduced contact policy for purchasing and picking up compost. It is preferred that the public pay for compost using Visa or Mastercard by phone. This contactless option allows safe, fast, and efficient service.
Staff will work with customers to schedule delivery or pickup. Those who need to pay with cash or check must first visit the Customer Service Department located at 225 E. Weatherspoon Street.
The City continues to offer contactless delivery for both woodchips and leaf compost within Lee County. The current rate for deliveries is $20 per trip within the city limits and $32.50 per trip outside of the city limits.
To place an order, schedule a delivery, or for more information, call the Public Works Service Center at 919-775-8247 or visit the compost section of our website.
