Where Can You Drop Off Compost?
We are currently in the process of renovating our compost systems organization-wide. During this time, we will only accept food scraps at our Sugar Creek location. Please be patient with us while we make our system even better! Email Derek@wyldecenter.org with any questions.
Oakhurst Garden @ 435 Oakview Road, Decatur: Under the arbor to the left (when facing the office), we have a rollaway trashcan where people dump their compost. Edgewood Garden @ 1503 Hardee St NE, Atlanta, GA 30307. There are compost bins behind the building where you may dump your compost.
Sugar Creek in the Oakhurst neighborhood in Decatur. Sugar Creek Garden is located in the floodplain behind Oakhurst Presbyterian Church at East Lake Drive and Second Avenue (across the street from the dog park); it is at the back of the Oakhurst Presbyterian Church parking lot. You may drop off your compost in the bins there that are located near the front of the garden.
