ELMIRA, N.Y. (WENY) -- The City of Elmira announced Thursday that it will open a city-wide compost facility on April 25. 

The facility will be open Tuesday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m., and 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. on Saturday.

In a press release, the City of Elmira said that the facility will accept grass, leaves, shrubs, twigs, plant material, branches and other compostable items. While the city says you can bring items to be composted in plastic bags, they do not allow plastic bags to be composted. Elmira says there will be a dumpster on-site to get rid of plastic bags and any other non-compostable materials.

The compost facility is located at the Elmira Department of Public Works.
