Compost facility Thayer Road

MOUNT VERNON - Effective Thursday, March 19, the compost facility will be open Monday – Sunday from 8 am – 6 pm 19 until further notice.

Knox County Recycling and the Knox County Commissioners are temporarily extending the operation hours for the Knox County Compost facility to seven (7) days a week. This will allow residents more flexibility as the weather begins to warm up and families are able to get outside to clean up their yards.

During these unusual circumstances, we ask that you use this time to get outside and lend a helping hand to your neighbors. We encourage residents to follow all of the guidelines issued by the CDC and social distancing.
