Yard Waste Disposal Tips

Options for legally removing yard waste from your property


The term “yard waste” refers to the organic debris that begins to cover your lawn as the seasons turn. This includes leaves, grass clippings, tree branches, shrubbery trimmings, garden clippings, and other types of natural material. Unfortunately, yard debris cannot be thrown out with your regular trash for curbside pickup in most municipalities. Instead of illegally dumping, burning, or letting this waste rot in your yard, explore other green and legal options. Here’s what to do with your yard waste this fall.

Yard Waste Removal

  • Ask your local municipality for special lawn waste pickups. Most municipalities pick up organic waste during the fall and spring. Just find out when it is by calling the trash service you use. There are also options to drop-off your lawn’s refuse at certain local sites where your debris is composted or chipped into mulch.
  • Rent a wood chipper and make your own mulch by using it on fallen branches, shrubs, and other wood debris. Wood chippers can be rented by the day. Just use caution when using one!
  • Compost your lawn waste. The nutrients that occur from your organic debris breaking down help to improve your soil quality. Composting is also a green alternative to removing your lawn waste via truck. Another bonus to composting is that you can throw certain kitchen scraps, coffee grounds, egg shells, and other organic matter on a compost pile.
  • The most wallet-friendly option for many people is to call a trash-hauling service like JDog Junk Removal & Hauling. When you do this, a friendly crew of professionals comes, removes your yard waste for you, and disposes of it legally. They can also pick up odds and ends you’ve been meaning to toss over the years.
