What is the Considered to be Yard Waste??

Yard waste consists of the organic debris created from landscaped areas, gardens, lawns and other outdoor projects.  This includes weeds, leaves, grass clippings, dead flowers and plants, brush, tree trunks, pruned branches and stems dirt, roots, wood shavings, rocks and even Christmas trees.  Yard waste accounts for a significant portion of the waste that ends up in landfills each year. 
 

​​

What are the options for disposal of yard waste?

  • Rent a dumpster to dispose of yard waste and have it hauled off once finished with debris. 
  • Dispose of yard waste in your local garbage pick-up.  Check the rules for disposal.
  • Burn yard waste.  This would require a burn permit.
  • Recycle yard waste.
Ways to recycle yard waste:
  • Turn your yard waste into mulch by chipping it with a chipper.  Mulch conserves water, keeps down weeds, keeps soil temperatures from becoming too hot or too cold, protects sloping ground from soil erosion, and stops compaction caused by driving rain or foot traffic.
  • Create a compost pile.  Once compost has been broken down it may be used as fertilizer for your yard, vegetable garden, or flower garden.  Composting takes about four (4) to six (6) months to break down
