City of Ishpeming Compost Site – Temporarily Closed

While the City Compost Site is temporarily close, to provide for disposal of your grass clippings, brush, and tree limbs (under three inches) for City of Ishpeming residents, please use the West Marquette County Transfer Station. This service is offered per the following schedule:

Monday 8 am to 4 pm

Friday 8 am to 2 pm.

You can call 486-8191 to check hours for specific dates. The City of Ishpeming Compost site will reopen after clean up of the site is complete.

What is Smart 911?

Smart 9-1-1 is a service that allows residents to create a free Safety Profile for their household that includes any information they want 9-1-1 and first responders to have in the event of an emergency.  Then, when anyone in that household dials 9-1-1 from a phone associated with their Safety Profile, their profile is immediately displayed to the 9-1-1 call taker providing additional information that can be used to facilitate the proper response to the proper location.  At a time when seconds count, Smart 9-1-1 provides details that could impact response the second an emergency call is placed, which could be the difference between life and death.

How does Smart911 work?

You enter your information…..  9-1-1 sees information that is vital in an emergency!

How can I sign up?

You can sign up for Smart 9-1-1 at and create a Safety Profile for your household to give 9-1-1 valuable information about yourself, family members, your home, pets and even vehicles that will display automatically on the 9-1-1 call taker’s screen when you make an emergency call.  It’s private and secure and you control what information is in your profile.  These details can save seconds or even minutes during an emergency.

 Sign up now!
