Longview's New Compost Site Fully Operational

Posted: Updated:

LONGVIEW (KYTX) - A new compost site in Longview is now fully operational.


The new site doubles the size of Longview's previous site, and was opened in October. The new site adds recycling for glass, paper, and other products for residents along with compost that residents can take home for free.  Longview City Spokesman Shawn Hara says the site is way to give something back to sanitation customers. 

"Instead of sending materials just to the landfill it allows us to take those materials save money and be able to return it back to the community for them to use as a resource for their home and gardens. " - Shawn Hara, City of Longview

The city says the compost site is expected to divert over 100,000 tons of waste from area landfills.
