Compost Site

The City of Paris Compost Site is available to residents for disposal of limbs and brush two times each month. Residents may also pick up free compost material for use in flower beds and gardens. A current water bill and a valid driver’s license or photo ID will be needed in order to drop off limbs and brush.

The compost site hours of operation are:  Monday - Friday 8:30am - 11:45am and 1:15pm - 4:30pm and Saturday 10:00am - 2:00pm . Hours of operation are based on staff availability and are therefore subject to change.  Please call 903-784-9266 or 903-783-1643 to confirm.


While the City of Paris does not provide curbside recycling services, our residents have enjoyed recycling efforts since January 4, 2016. Residents may take their recyclables to the Compost Site located at 705 Field St from Monday - Friday 8:30am to 11:45am and 1:15pm to 4:30pm and on Saturday from 10:00am to 2:00pm. Because of manpower availability, hours of operation are subject to change.  Please call 903-784-9266 or 903-783-1643 to confirm.  A current water bill and valid driver’s license must match to drop off recyclables. 

Residents are asked to break down boxes. Residents do not need to sort recyclables - sorting is done at the recycling station.

Appliances, galvanized pipe and glass are not recyclable.
