Utilities - April 11, 2017
The city is offering free leaf compost April 14, 15, 22 and 29 for as long as supplies last. Compost will be loaded on all days between 8 a.m. and 3 p.m. at the Forum 52 Yard Waste Facility, 180 Northstar Drive, in Rural Hall (in the Forum 52 Business Park off Forum Parkway).
No leaf compost will be available prior to the scheduled distribution dates. On Friday and Saturday, April 14 - 15, compost will be loaded only into small vehicles, including cars and pickup trucks with or without trailers; and single-axle flat bed and single-axle dump trucks. All other vehicles will be turned away and asked to come back during the last two dates.
On Saturday, April 22 and Saturday, April 29, all types of vehicles will be loaded.
All vehicles must have a tarp or cover and all loads must be fully covered before leaving the site. Vehicles without a tarp or cover will not be loaded.
The Forum 52 Yard-Waste Facility can be reached by taking U.S. 52 north from downtown Winston-Salem. Take exit 118 and turn right at the top of the ramp onto N.C. 65 east, and then turn right at the first stoplight onto Forum Parkway.
