Organic Material/Green Waste

Grass clippings, leaves, pruning waste, branches, unpainted and untreated wood are all considered organics, green waste and/or wood waste. Painted or treated wood must be disposed of as refuse - do NOT burn treated or painted wood! It is hazardous to your health, the environment, and it is illegal.

Clean wood (nails are okay) can be recycled curbside in the green carts. (Both green waste bins and recycling bins are provided free-of-charge with regular curbside service).  Small amounts of fruit and vegetable scraps my be placed in green waste containers - as all materials are composted (no meat, dairy, or ready-made products). Green waste also can be delivered to facilities for a small fee.
