You may soon be charged for the extra material overflowing from your yard waste/organics green bin. If your cart is brimming over with material, please place yard waste extras in a paper bag next to the cart. There is a charge for additional units of organics beyond the basic service (except double holiday loads).
For yard trimmings that don't fit in your yard cart you may use:
Paper yard bags (available at home and garden stores)
32 gallon cans with handles and lids (65 lbs. limit) labeled "yard"
Bundles tied with sisal twine ( 4'x2' limit)
Please note that yard trimmings are not accepted in plastic bags. Plastic bags are not compostable and cause processing and odor problems at the composting facility. Thank you.
