How Our Yardwaste Program Works
Once you sign up for our Yardwaste Service, we supply you with a specially-designed 65-gallon yard waste container along with an instruction guide with a list of materials to include in the yard waste pickup, which is done weekly. Participants may set out an additional 35-gallon can of yard debris or a bundle of branches each week at the same price. That means up to 100 gallons of yard waste for just one small monthly fee!
All materials are taken to a compost facility where they are transformed into compost and mulch in a relatively short period of time.
Special Cart Features that Prepare Materials for Composting
- The cart contains a screen-like, removable subfloor about five inches from the container bottom to help move moisture from yard waste materials to the bottom of the container
- There are two vents near the top of the cart and two near the bottom that allow air to pass in and out of the container and through the materials inside, this helps dry out the materials
These features help reduce the weight of materials as collection day approaches, removes moisture, which contributes to odor, and starts the breakdown cycle so that your yard waste begins its transition into compost.
