Compost Facility

Due to recent heavy rain, the Compost Facility is temporarily out of screened compost, including bagged compost.  Unscreened compost and other products are still available

The city of Bentonville produces and sells composting materials.


  • Bentonville citizens may dispose of yard waste with a recent utility bill and a photo identification.
  • Non-Bentonville citizens may dispose of brush and tree limbs only.
  • Recycling bins are available at the Composting Facility during normal business hours.
  • Bentonville Compost Facility no longer accepts commercial waste haulers.
