Ingleside Compost Facility

Other Link Frequently Asked Questions


The Ingleside Compost Facility is a convenience we offer to High Point residents for disposal of yard debris and the opportunity to purchase materials like mulch, engineered soil, or compost. 

Note: By utilizing the City of High Point public drop off site, the customer agrees to hold the City of High Point harmless for any and all liabilities, damages, costs, fees or expense to equipment or persons utilizing the site, unless the damage occurs from a city employee or equipment.


When you enter the gates on Ingleside Drive, pull on to the right side of the scale to be weighed, and the scale house operator will advise you where to go.  Do not leave the scales until you have spoken to the scale house attendant. 

  • For those unloading yard waste: Once you are directed where to go, it is your responsibility to unload any yard waste. You MUST return to the out bound scale to weigh out and pay (if applicable).
  • For those purchasing materials: Once you are directed where to go, an attendant will load your vehicle with the material requested. Please return to the outbound scale on the right and the scale house operator will let you know the cost.

All vehicles must weigh in and out.
