Make a Plan for Yard Waste Removal This Year
What Will You Do With Fallen Leaves?
Are you starting to notice the first signs of autumn? The days are getting shorter, it’s no longer scorching hot outside, and leaves are starting to fall. While you don’t need to pull out the rake just yet, it’s time to start making a plan for yard waste removal this year.
Your Plan for Yard Waste Removal This Year
- Make a plan for disposal. Did you know you shouldn’t just leave your leaves out by the curb? Your waste management crew probably won’t pick it up with the rest of your regular trash. Prepare for the rush now by checking in with your local municipality to see if there are special lawn waste pickups. If the date won’t line up with your plan, look for drop off locations where your debris is composted or chipped into mulch.
- Find a way to repurpose your waste. 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. It’s great if you already have a composting area for your home, but it’s also a wonderful reason to start one. Once you have a composting site, you can throw kitchen scraps, coffee grounds, eggshells, and other organic matter on the compost pile.
- Call a junk hauling company. You can get the help of a trash-hauling service like JDog Junk Removal & Hauling.
