Stewartville Brush & Compost Site – NOW OPEN!

Posted on July 18, 2018 at 12:10 pm

The Stewartville Brush and Compost Disposal Site is now reopened after a 5 day shutdown to reorganize and catch up on cleanup. Signs have been posted that tell people what is allowed and where we would like it dumped. Please dump only what is allowed behind each sign(east side of signs). We also ask to make sure that nobody goes up to where the burn pile is. If people keep throwing brush on the burn pile it reignites and if the wind is out of the wrong direction causes smoke issues for the neighbors.
Thank you for your cooperation!
