I think the 'too much compost' issue was that people took to it more than Council thought and there was not adequate space to store it as the existing stuff in the facility was breaking down. I believe a lot of it was from grass clippings which was why the city has had a bit of a spring campaign saying 'leave a layer of grass clippings on your lawn, it will turn to mulch and help your grass'.

The idea of free or cheap compost is an interesting one. Could easily be pulled off and would probably have lots of people show up. However I don't know what the actual output of the facility is and if they have a surplus of compost. I think there have been some days such as this for wood chips.

As for the horse manure, the police seem to just let the horses go wherever they want without cleanup. A relative of mine lives near one of their routes near Hess and there's regularly manure ground into the streets there. He asked one of the mounted policemen one time regarding it and they said they don't collect it.
