  • Bring your own shovel and covered container.
  • Each household is allowed to collect one cubic yard of compost per month from the facility on a first-come first-served basis.
  • Residents that see commercial vehicles taking compost are asked to report the vehicle license number to Donna Kliewer with the City of Allen at 214.509.4551.
  • This site is unattended and thus relies on the honor system.

This is not a drop-off site for branches, yard waste, grass or organic materials. Leaving such material is considered illegal dumping. Dumpers will be prosecuted.
