Bannock County Landfill Compost
Compost is sold Monday through Saturday from 7:00 am to 5:00 pm. The cost is $35 per ton.
In the fall of 2001, a partnership between the City of Pocatello and Bannock County was formed to come up with a solution for the disposal of organic waste. This partnership was a result of a citizen’s committee that began asking about the recycling of green material.
A memorandum of understanding was entered into September 6, 2001 between the two entities. Both parties recognized that it was in the best interest of the citizens to save the valuable landfill air space that was remaining in the landfill. It was decided that a three-year pilot program would be necessary to determine the long-term feasibility of composting material at the landfill.
