All appears to be going well with the City of Wood River's composting site. The solid waste project is located at Envirotech Park, just off Highway 143, and Route 3. The compost site has been open for a little less than 5 years and Steve Palen, the city's Director of Public Works, tells The Big Z it is providing a nice cost savings for the city.

He says you don't have to be a resident to pick up the compost, but you have to be a resident to drop off your yard waste. The compost is free for the taking, according to Palen.
