Recycling and Compost

Recycling and Compost Overview

Legal contracts Blue Bag recycling from Ever Green Ecological Services. This service is provided to residents of Legal on a weekly basis at a flat rate of $7.00 bi-monthly.

  • Recycle pick-up is every Tuesday unless otherwise posted.

In addition to Blue Bag recycling and solid waste management services, the Town provides a Compost disposal site for residents. The site is located at the Town Shop and is intended for yard waste only. Yard waste can be defined as: branches, leaves, grass clippings, and other biodegradable yard material. 

The compost disposal site does not accommodate food scraps or human/animal waste. Help increase the longevity of the landfill by properly disposing of yard waste. The Town and its contract service providers will not pick up any yard waste.
