City of Ironwood Compost Site Information

Previously the City of Ironwood Compost Site was unmanaged, resulting in unregulated disposal and use of the facility by individuals and businesses from outside of the community.  In 2021, the City of Ironwood had a very costly clean up that required the City to implement some changes.  This year is the City is implementing operational efforts to establish and maintain the operations of this facility to ensure the long-term sustainability of this service to the public.
