Yard Waste


Grass, leaves, and brush get recycled, too! If you have curbside recycling, you can put out yard waste the same day as your other recyclables. You can also take it to our composting facility at 1708 S. Armstrong Avenue. We turn your yard waste into compost and mulch that you can use in your garden!
