Extra Yard Trimmings


There is a charge for additional units of yard trimmings (no food scraps) beyond the basic service.

For yard trimmings that don't fit in your yard cart you may use:

  • Paper yard bags (available at home and garden stores), or
  • 32-gal. cans with handles & lids (55 lb. limit) labeled "Yard" or
  • Bundles tied with sisal twine (4'x2' limit)

    * Yard trimmings are not accepted in plastic bags.

    Plastic bags are not compostable and cause processing and odor problems at the composting facility.

    Yard Trimmings Discouraged in Garbage

    Yard trimmings are prohibited from garbage containers. Yard trimmings create extra landfill expense, but can provide nutritious compost and mulch if composted.

    Options for Disposing of Yard Trimmings:

    Compost in your yard (most energy efficient choice!)
    Put yard trimmings in a yard cart to be collected at the curb
    ------ (Sign up for food / yard collection.)
    Take yard trimmings to a transfer station that accepts "clean green".
