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 (65 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.
