Purchasing Compost

The Greater Lebanon Refuse Authority (GLRA) has developed a compost operation that allows county residents to bring in green waste and clean wood for a reduced fee, in return they can buy plant bedding and wood mulch at a low price.    

Accepted Materials

The GLRA accepts leaves, grass clippings, tree trimmings, shrubbery clippings and branches as green waste. The Greater Lebanon Refuse Authority also recycles Christmas trees at the appropriate season. This green waste is then composted at the GLRA Compost Facility which produces a high quality plant bedding.  Plant Bedding can be purchased by residents for $12 per cubic yard.

The GLRA also accepts wood pallets, untreated and unpainted raw lumber, as clean wood. Clean wood is also composted at GLRA's Compost Facility to produce a decorative top cover to be used around lawns, homes and on flower beds. Wood mulch may also be purchased by residents for $12 per cubic yard.

We have plenty of Plant Bedding AVAILABLE to the public for purchase. The price is $12 per cubic yard. A tarp is required and loads must be covered. 


ONLY PLANT BEDDING is available for DELIVERY. To be eligible for delivery, you must purchase at least 10 cubic yards ($120.00) of material. The Delivery Fee is an additional $30.00. Deliveries must be within Lebanon County. If interested, please call our office to schedule 717-867-5790.
