NORMAN, Okla. (KFOR) – A new compost release will soon be available to Norman community members, as well as residents who live outside of Norman.
Norman residents can pick up the compost at the City of Norman’s compost facility beginning Saturday, Sept. 19, according to a city news release.
Individuals who do not live in Norman may collect compost in Norman beginning Sept. 21.
The compost facility will have extended hours on Sept. 19, operating from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. The facility normally operates from 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday and from 8 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on Saturdays.
