Schedule a Drop Off

We no longer accept commercial landscapers' loads of yard waste at the McNeil Station waste wood yard. All commercial landscapers must deliver directly to Green Mountain Compost at 1042 Redmond Road in Williston. We will still accept wood debris from commercial landscapers, but not yard waste.


The wood that is dropped off there is generated into electricity at the McNeil Generating Station. 

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.

The Waste Wood Yagrd does not accept compostable items (food scraps). Household food waste must go to the composting facility on Redmond Road
