The yard accepts clean waste wood at no charge, including wood that has never been painted, stained, treated or glued; brush, tree trimmings, trunks and limbs up to six feet long and two feet in diameter; stumps up to two feet in diameter that are free of dirt and stones. Pressure-treated wood, plywood and particle board are not accepted, nor are cable spools unless completely disassembled and all hardware removed. Nails, screws, and staples in wood are accepted, but not spikes, hinges, straps or heavy metal appendages of any sort.

  • We will still accept wood debris from commercial landscapers, but not yard waste.
  • We no longer accept commercial landscapers' loads of yard waste at the McNeil Station waste wood yard.
    • All commercial landscapers must deliver leaves and trimmings directly to Green Mountain Compost at 1042 Redmond Road in Williston. No wood waste of any kind is accepted at GMC.
    • Commercial landscapers with mixed loads of leaves and woody debris must go to the CSWD Drop-Off Center at 1492 Redmond Road in Williston.
