Got Yard Debris?

Free Drop Off Program Has Ended

Due to the overwhelming response to the Free Green Waste Days for defensible space clearing at West Marin Compost – the facility is at capacity and cannot accept anymore material. We are sorry to have to CANCEL the last day. Please pass the word.


The green materials drop off site is open to the public:

Monday - Saturday from 7:00am to 3:30pm

5575 Nicasio Valley Rd, Nicasio, CA 94946

Drop off fee

Price Increase

As of April 1, 2020 our prices will increase as follows:

Tipping fee for yard and wood debris: $30.00/cy

  • This facility is not economically viable without a rate increase
  • We provide a local service and would like to continue to do so
  • The compost facility along Hwy 101 is higher than our new price
  • This facility was not set up to receive materials from the 101 corridor

The drop off fee provides essential long-term support for the project and is competitive with alternative green materials disposal options for West Marin residents, while reducing the time and fuel needed for trucking to East Marin disposal sites, or beyond.

Please note: It is illegal to put toxins into the green can or dispose of them in any but an approved toxic waste facility. Each incoming load is inspected; contaminated loads are not accepted. If contaminants are found following off-loading, the driver will be required to immediately reload and remove the material from the site.

Only clean green material (yard debris and wood scraps) will be accepted at the drop off site.

Tipping fee: A tipping fee is charged for all materials delivered to the drop off site. Each load will be measured to assess the volume.
