[ARCHIVED] New access hours for Elk River compost site

Effective Oct. 1, the city of Elk River’s compost site drop-off hours will change to 5:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily.

The compost site has experienced illegal dumping under the 24/7 accessibility, which has resulted in the decreased service hours.

Use of the site is free for Sherburne County residents. The site is located near the maintenance facility at 19000 Proctor Road. Use requires an access pass which may be obtained with proof of residency (i.e. valid driver’s license).

Non-Sherburne County residents wanting access are required to purchase a $50 access pass valid for the calendar year. Commercial users are required to purchase a $200 access pass valid for the calendar year. The Elk River compost site will only accept cash or checks payable to the City of Elk River.

Visit the streets department page at for more information on the compost site, passes, and a list of acceptable items.
