The Sartell compost site will be open until Nov. 16 not just for city residents but for people in LeSauk Township and St. Cloud residents, if they want to pay for a compost sticker.
For Sartell residents, the annual sticker costs $31. For non-city residents, it costs $61. The stickers must be affixed on the inside lower portion of a vehicle’s windshield, on the driver’s side.
The stickers may be purchased at Sartell City Hall or on the city’s website: www.sartellmn.com.
The compost site is open from 4-6 p.m. Mondays and Fridays; from 1-6 p.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays; and from 8 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturdays. It’s closed Wednesdays and Sundays.
What’s allowable at the compost site is yard waste that includes brush, grass clippings, leaves, acorns, pine cones, pumpkins, apples, garden vegetation, dirt and soil, corn stalks, firewood and tree branches. Branches and other yard waste must be separated.
People who have compost-site permit stickers are allowed to take a load of finished compost home from the site to be used on yards or gardens.
The Sartell compost site is located just off CR 4 along 30th Avenue N. The site is typically opened temporarily in the post-holiday season so people may bring their Christmas trees to the site. Those times and dates will be announced later.
