About Composting

All residents of Copperas Cove are encouraged to purchase compost from the City’s Solid Waste Department. To ensure availability, please call Solid Waste at 254-547-4242.

On most days, compost will be available for pick up immediately. However, during high demand it could be up to four (4) days before compost is available for pick up. Compost may be purchased between 8:00 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday from the Solid Waste Transfer Station located at 2605 S. FM 116.

Payment by cash or check is due at pick up. The fees for compost are $8.50 plus tax for one (1) cubic yard or one (1) container full of up to thirty (30) gallons is $2.25 plus tax. Residents have the option of bringing their own container or the City will gladly sell kraft bags for $.37 each. Unfortunately, the City doesn’t currently offer delivery services for compost.
