Compost

The City of Sylvania produces a premium-quality compost at our 23 acre facility. The material is made from leaves and green yard waste collected during the growing season. The cost is $15.00 per cubic yard (PERSONAL CHECKS ONLY PLEASE). Click here for location map of our facility.

Green Waste Collection

You can also get green waste pickup schedules, Kraft paper bags and container stickers at either of these locations, or by calling 419-885-8992.

  • Utilities office, Municipal Administration Building, 6730 Monroe St.
  • Parks & Forestry offices, 8425 Sylvania-Metamora Rd.

If you frequently have green yard waste, you can save money with a yard waste sticker. You can purchase a sticker for one garbage can, which is good for the entire year – eliminating the need to buy green waste Kraft paper bags.
