Portland residents can purchase compost for spring gardening from leaves collected around the city as part of Leaf Day Pickup. City of Portland crews use collected materials for maintenance and repair projects, while some recycled materials, like leaf compost and crushed rock, is available to the public.
Sunderland is responsible for composting the more than 5,000 tons of leaves collected through the Leaf Day program. Removing leaves from streets helps maintain streets from clogged storm drains, flooded intersections and slippery streets.
The facility is open to the public the weekends of May 2-3 and May 16-17, 2015 from 7 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. In addition to the special weekend sales, Sunderland is open to the public during its regular business hours: Monday through Friday, 7 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
The cost for each cubic yard of compost is $24.
Sunderland Recycling Facility is located at 9325 NE Sunderland Rd.
