Composting
Yard waste and grass CANNOT go in the trash or recycling cart. Your cart(s) will not be emptied, if yard debris is found in either cart.

Organic waste (relating to or derived from organic material) is inclusive of leaves, grass as well as potted plants, house plants, house trees, annuals, perennials, vegetable and flower debris, stem cuttings, special occasion flowers, Christmas trees and wreaths (remove all decorations), branches, etc.. Organic waste should not enter the trash or recycle carts. Organic waste should be diverted for composting. Not only are leaves and grass banned from the trash (State Waste Ban) but diverting organic debris from the trash will save significant tax dollars.
