A sure sign that spring is coming, the city of Wichita Falls has set its annual compost giveaway.

Residents who choose to participate in the reuse program can collect a free batch of compost at the Wichita Falls Organics Facility.

The giveaway will be held at the Wichita Falls Landfill on Wiley Road on March 6th, 9 am-3pm. City workers load the compost for residents. The limit is one pickup or one 4×8 trailer load per person.

Residents must present a Wichita Falls City water bill showing the $ 3 recycling program fee.

All loads must be covered to ensure that dirt does not blow onto the streets.

Dump trucks, commercial vehicles, or oversized trailers are not allowed.

Directions to the landfill:

  • Take Seymour Highway Southwest towards Seymour on Highway 258.
  • At Hand “Y”, head west on Hwy 258 toward Hand.
  • Go about a mile to Wiley Road and turn right.
  • Stay two miles on Wiley Road. The entrance to the landfill is on the left.
