Extra Yard Trimmings


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

Extra yard debris carts are available for a reduced rate.

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)
  • If you have more than an occasional extra bag of yard debris, it would be less expensive to request an extra cart.
* Yard trimmings are not accepted in plastic bags.

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