Temporary Closure of Compost Facility Beginning January 29, 2024

Date of Release: 
January 26, 2024

Due to routine grinding of brush, the City of Paducah Compost Facility located at 1560 North 8th Street will be closed to the public until further notice beginning January 29. 

Over the past several weeks, the Compost Facility has received a more than normal supply of organic material which has significantly reduced the amount of available space. The Facility closed last September into October for grinding; however, it is necessary to complete the materials grinding process again at this time.

What is the Compost Facility? The regular schedule for the Compost Facility, which is operated by the Public Works Department, is Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. until 3 p.m. The Facility accepts brush, leaves, and yard debris from Paducah residents at no charge. There is a fee for contractors and those outside the City limits to drop off yard debris. Premium compost, wood chip compost, and raw wood chips are available for purchase by the bucket load. Contact the Public Works Department at 270-444-8511 to inquire about product availability.
