Lake weeds are collected in separate carts from regular organic carts. This allows the City to locally process compost at the Eco Centre.
About the Compost: lake weeds and yard waste is mechanically churned with a tractor and spinner. The process takes place for approximately one year. The larger clumps are screened out and the remaining compost is made available to residents.
Picking Up Compost: Residents must bring their own shovels and bins: these are not provided at the depot. Staff are not available to help load material. Please take only what you need - you cannot take a full truckload.
