Yard waste can be composted on your own property or delivered to a registered compost facility. Many cities also offer seasonal yard waste collections.
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. Contact your city service department for details.
Yard Waste Tips
- Do not line paper yard waste bags with plastic bags.
- Keep the debris out. Only include grass clippings, leaves and brush.
- 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.
- NO flower pots. Empty plastic flower pots, packs and flats should be reused or placed in the trash for disposal. See more about flower pots.
- NO hoses, rakes and other yard tools in yard waste bags or bins.
Yard Waste Facilites
There is no county-operated landfill or yard waste facility. Large amounts of yard waste, including wood, leaves, brush, logs and dirt, can be hauled to a local compost or yard waste facility. Prices and specifications are determined by the facility.
