VIDEO: What and Where is the Compost Site?

The compost site is open 2-5 p.m. Friday and closes for the year after Saturday's shift of 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Before we know it, the snow will be here.

But before we get there, we have to finish cleaning up our yards from the natural process of autumn. And if you're looking to use Northfield's compost site, you better hurry up.

The compost site is open 2-5 p.m. Friday and closes for the year after Saturday's shift of 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. The site is located between Northfield and Dundas on Armstrong Road, just south of Sechler Park.

Northfield residents may take all yard wastes, including brush, branches and shrubbery, to the compost site. This year, the site also started accepting organic waste. For more on that, head to the city website.

Check out the video here on Patch to get a look at what the compost site is and what it offers Northfield residents.

I've been wondering about this. Can you then also, take compost that has been "aged" and use it in your own garden?

Lisa, the best bet is calling the city and asking them: 507-645-3050.
