- Providing sustainability in Southern Oregon -


Welcome, Southern Oregon Compost (SOC) provides high quality compost, turning your clean yard debris into productive landscaping materials. We also provide bark, pumice and soils for landscaping.  


Recommended Uses for Compost


Compost is primarily used for breaking up clay and compacted soils to provide aeration, tilth and water penetration, thereby improving root development. Compost also works well as a top mulch for dressing planting beds, holding in moisture, and reducing weeds.



We look forward to doing business with you!


Yard Debris Accepted


$2 min, $1 per yard 

SOC accepts clean yard debris, grass, leaves, pruning's, brush,

 trees (6'  max. length), and horse manure. 

We do not accept: plastic, sod, stumps, rocks, or garbage. 

We charge $2 min, $1 per yard, for dropping off material. SOC grinds this material and adds only Dairy and Horse manure. It is then windrowed, cooked, turned, and screened into Compost. Neither sewer sludge nor bio-solids are used.
