The Topsfield Composting Center will open for the season on April 6, 2019.  There is a fee to drop-off leaves and yard waste. Residents can go to the Inspectional Services Office, Ground Floor in Town Hall and purchase a Compost Access Ticket for $10.  Each ticket will allow the disposal of up to 2 cubic yards (a standard body pick-up truck) of material per visit.  Each visit will require a separate access ticket.

Seasonal vehicle stickers can be purchased at Town Hall for $75 per year.

The Compost Center is open and staffed on Saturdays from 9 AM to 1 PM only.  No weekday drop-off is permitted unless prior arrangements have been made.  Any additional information can be obtained by calling the Highway Department at (978) 887-1542.
