Charles City mayor asks out-of-towners not to use Shaw Avenue Compost Site

Charles City’s Shaw Avenue Compost Site (over on 300 Shaw Avenue) is an amenity that helps community members pick and drop off lawn materials.

One can:

  1. Drop off site for leaves, grass clippings, garden waste.
  2. Drop off site for trees, branches, brush.
  3. Pick up site for compost material.
  4. Pick up for wood chips.

This service is available at no charge to locals. And in that way, Mayor Dean Andrews says it should only be used by locals.


Andrews says anybody can pick up from the site – but only city members can drop off. This is due to recent activity at the site where out of county people are dropping off large loads without permission. This action will soon be met with a fine.
