What about noxious weeds?

Does West Marin Compost accept noxious weeds, and what happens to weeds in the composting process?

WMC does accept almost all “weeds.”  Except for Tim.

In all seriousness, most weeds and weed seeds are destroyed by the high

temperatures of the thermophilic composting process.  One notable exception is

the seeds of common garden morning glory (Convolvulus arvensis), which have

 been shown to survive temperatures of up to 180 F.  Consequently, we do not

accept this material at the drop off site.   

Most other plant material is accepted.
