The Taylor Hills Compost Facility provides a high-quality soil amendment product for landscapers and gardeners. A quality product is available at competitive pricing and is free for residents if the compost is loaded by the resident. If the compost has to be loaded by facility staff, there is a $10 loading fee plus a fee of $5 per yard. 

Using compost is an excellent opportunity to help the environment by taking yard waste that was typically land filled and converting it into a useful, viable product. 

The facility is located between Pennsylvania and Eureka roads, east of Telegraph Road. 

Each residence (homes with curbside rubbish pickup or taxpaying resident) in the City of Taylor is entitled to two free annual dump visits (up to 500 pounds per dump) at the Taylor Hills Transfer Station/Compost Site. 

To take advantage of this free dumping, residents must show proof of residency to the gate attendant upon arrival at the Transfer Station.  Residents are no longer required to obtain a physical pass. 

They are now processed electronically. To show proof of residency a photo ID or tax bill/deed with proof of identification is acceptable.

Residents are asked to use compost bags (brown paper bags) along with compost cans for COMPOST ONLY (i.e. grass clippings, leaves). No bags or cans will be accepted with rubbish or debris mixed with compost.  This process will insure the quality of finished compost available to Taylor residents.

Non-acceptable items include hazardous waste (look for caution signs on items like danger, warning or poison), concrete, brick, shingles, tires, paint, car parts, boats and trailers.

The City of Taylor maintains the right to refuse any loads or customers at the site.

The site will be closed on the following dates: May 28-29-30; July 2-3-4; September 3-4-5; November 11-12-13 and 24-25-26-27; December 23-24-25-26 and 30-31; and on January 1, 2017.
