WINTER STREET COMPOSTING FACILITY REGULATIONS
The Winter Street Composting Facility is strictly for the use of NORWOOD RESIDENTS!
Commercial, agricultural and industrial disposal is prohibited
Compost Facility permits are available from the DPW Administration Office located at the Public Works Facility at 1 Lyman Place on Monday - Friday from 7:00 AM - 3:00 PM. Your vehicle registration is required. The permit will be issued for the vehicle shown on the RMV Registration. Permits for commercial vehicles will be issued on a case by case basis only. Landscape contractors, property managers and similar businesses are ineligible for facility access.
The sticker MUST BE AFFIXED TO THE LOWER LEFT CORNER OF THE WINDSHIELD.
Please note that the small, green paper permits are no longer valid and access to the facility will be denied. The permit style was changed in October of 2010 to a yellow, square sticker that must be affixed to the windshield and is valid for the specific vehicle noted on it. While the sticker is still free to Norwood residents and doesn't expire, it allows us to better track the use of the Winter St. Facility and is required for entrance.
Compost Facility staff monitor all vehicles that use the facility and have been instructed to report anyone suspected of violating these regulations. Should it be determined that a violation of the rules and regulations has occurred, the following penalties will be imposed:
1st offense: A verbal and written warning will be issued
2nd offense: Forfeiture of Compost Facility Permit
Each vehicle using the Compost Facility is required to have a permit, which must be displayed. Vehicles without a permit will not be allowed to use the Facility. If your permit is lost, or you sell your vehicle, please visit the DPW for a new permit.
This is another one of Norwood's great assests. Please assist us in ensuring its continued success.
Thank you for your assistance and cooperation!
