The city of Winston-Salem is offering free leaf compost March 25-26 and April 2 and 9 for as long as supplies last. Compost will be loaded on all days between 8am. and 3pm at the Forum 52 Yard Waste Facility, 180 Northstar Drive, Rural Hall (in the Forum 52 Business Park off Forum Parkway).

New procedures will be implemented for this distribution. No leaf compost will be available prior to the scheduled distribution dates. On Friday and Saturday, March 25-26, compost will be loaded only into small vehicles, including cars and pickup trucks, with or without trailers; and single-axle flat bed and dump trucks. All other vehicles will be turned away and asked to come back during the April dates.

On Saturday, April 2 and Saturday, April 9, 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.
