Over recent weeks the Town of Neepawa compost site has had a variety of non-compost items dumped off.

Neepawa’s compost site at the north-east corner of town continues to be abused as this photo shows.

Many tonnes of yard waste are converted to mulch or compost at the site and town staff valiantly try to stay ahead of the incoming material.

Small plant waste and grass clippings are supposed to go on one area, tree branches in another. For plastic bags, garbage cans are supplied. Most citizens respectfully use and appreciate the service.

There are exceptions though. In case anyone should wonder, storm doors, windows, coat hangers, pallets and plastic containers don’t belong at the compost site.
