Compost Authority


The First Regional Compost Authority is open to commercial businesses and residents to drop-off brush, wood, wood chips, leaves and grass clippings (certain rules apply) at the Central Processing Center, 6701 Weaversville Road Northampton, Pennsylvania.

Currently, if you are a Resident from any of the following Municipalities: Allen Township, Bath Borough, Bushkill Township, East Allen Township, Lehigh Township, Lower Nazareth Township, Moore Township, Northampton Borough, you can drop off your yard waste at our facility.

The First Regional Compost Authority is governed by 5 Townships and was originally formed to recycle yard waste.  As the Department of Environmental Protection requires certain Townships/Boroughs to recycle their yard waste, it is everybody’s responsibility to reduce the amount of  waste in our landfills.  This is accomplished by assisting the Authority in dropping off brush, wood, wood chips and leaves to our facility for recycling the raw product into a finished product.

The First Regional Compost Authority invites your residential  yard waste to be dropped off at our Center or have your commercial business participate in our recycling effort (commercial businesses are required to fill out a credit application prior to access to the drop- off center).  This application, our rate schedule and any other information can be obtained by stopping at our facility, calling us (610-262-1000 during our business hours.).
