In parts of our service region, we partner with municipalities to offer a separate yard waste collection. If yard waste collection is offered in your area, please contact us for specific guidelines in your community. In general, please place leaves and grass clippings in biodegradable bags (NO PLASTIC BAGS) and bundle limbs for collection on your regularly scheduled yard waste day.
In areas where yard waste collection isn’t available, residents can mix the organic waste in with their garbage. Again, please keep in mind, yard waste must be bundled or bagged.
Why is Lawn Waste Pickup Important?
Yard waste consists of organic material. It typically is produced from the care and maintenance of landscaped gardens and lawns, or it can be branches knocked loose by high winds. This type of waste includes grass clippings, leaves, tree limbs, brush and pruning from trees and bushes. Properly disposing of yard waste can boost your property’s curb appeal. A healthy lawn and well-maintained landscaping can even add value to your home.
In some states, it’s illegal for residents to mix yard waste with household garbage, and for good reason. The breakdown of yard waste in oxygen-deprived landfills creates methane emissions — one of the most potent greenhouse gases. Additionally, burning yard debris in your backyard adds to air pollution and harms the environment. Yard waste fires can get out of hand quickly, especially during windy conditions, which significantly increases the chance of a wildfire.
When collected by a grass pickup service, yard debris is typically taken to commercial composting facilities where it’s allowed to rot in a huge compost pile. This saves space in landfills, reduces methane emissions and creates a nutrient-rich, natural fertilizer for agricultural use.
