New pile of screened compost now available

TJ Heinricy, Streets & Parks Supervisor, reported in the Aug. 21 Friday Memo that "The City compost site has been busy with the annual compost screening. This project entails the screening of two or three year old compost."

I took the left photo a week ago when Dakota Wood Grinding’s compost screening equipment arrived. I took the right photo today showing that a huge mound of compost is now ready for citizens to use, first come, first-served. See the city’s yard waste page for more, including this compost site PDF.

    Hey, how come we don’t get any chips?! In last week’s Friday Memo, TJ Heinricy reports:

    Wednesday the annual chipping of the
    brush pile at the City’s compost was
    done. The chips are hauled off site to
    an incinerator in St Paul, MN and are
    burned to generate energy to be used
    in downtown St Paul. To see photos of
    this project, check the City

    The URL in the PDF is broken. Here’s the working link to the photo.
