Vegetative Waste Yard

The Town of Paradise Vegetative Waste Yard is managed by NRWS. All material is ground up each week by Durham Wood and is then taken to their co-generation plant where it is burned for energy. All curbside material picked up by NRWS goes to the Earth Worm Soil Factory for composting. The large volumes of material coming into the Vegetative Waste Yard is beyond capacity for the Earth Worm Soil Factory. We hope to see all vegetative waste and food scraps composted in the future and are working on implementing a county wide composting facility to fit these needs.
