What to Do with Yard Waste this Fall
Keep your property clean and beautiful
Yard waste is the organic matter that you find accumulating in your lawn from spring to fall. It includes things like fallen leaves, grass clippings, and tree trimmings — just to name a few examples. As this debris piles up, it becomes unsightly, meaning it’s time for a cleanup. Unfortunately for homeowners, yard waste cannot be tossed with your regular trash. So, what do you do with all of this organic debris you’ve got piling up on your lawn? We’ve come up with a few instructions for disposing of your yard waste this fall. Read on to learn what to do.
Solutions for Yard Waste this Fall
- First, do your research. Check with your local trash company to ask about how much yard waste they’re willing to collect, when they want you to leave it out, and how they prefer it to be packed up.
- Rake it, pile it, and then pack it. Pack your organic lawn debris into brown paper bags made specifically for the purposes of yard waste removal. These bags are readily available at a nursery, hardware store, home improvement, and even a grocery store near you. While at the store, purchase balls of twine to use if you’re collecting tree twigs to dispose of.
- Remember the environment. When shopping for these brown paper bags, try to find biodegradable and compostable bags that will decompose at the same rate as your lawn waste. If you plan to use reusable plastic containers, be sure to clearly label the sides “yard waste” so the trash collectors can easily identify its contents.
