Yard Waste

Yard Waste


Small amounts of yard waste and organics can be composted in your own backyard. The District encourages backyard composting and offers seminars and bins for sale.

Some city service departments offer a yard waste collection service for residents. See details for your community.

  • NO rocks, sod, soil, gravel, roots and logs in yard waste bags or bins.
  • NO plastic edging, fertilizer bags or product packaging, trash and other debris in yard waste bags or bins.
