Free Compost Sites

Cheltenham Township invites residents to pick up free leaf compost at three Township locations:

  • Curtis Arboretum lower level parking lot, located at Church Road and Greenwood Avenue in Wyncote.
  • Kleinheinz Pond parking lot, off of Tookany Parkway in Cheltenham.
  • Waverly Road Compost Facility, on Waverly Road in Laverock.

The Waverly Road Compost Facility is open on weekdays from 7:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. and on Saturdays from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., unless affected by a holiday. (Hours are reduced from 7:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. until further notice due to COVID-19 mitigation)   More Details The Waverly Road Compost Facility will be open on  Saturday, April 11, 2020  during the  holiday weekend because curb-side pick-up is temporarily halted due to COVID-19

The other locations are open to the public daily. Residents must bring their own shovels and containers to collect the compost.  The free compost is generated from materials collected in the municipal leaf and garden debris collection program throughout the Township.
