Yard Waste Disposal

The Yard Waste Mulching Center is located inside the Maintenance & Operations Facility, 12301 Claude Court.

Yard Waste Disposal

The city encourages residents to bring yard waste, including grass clippings, leaves, etc. to the Yard Waste Mulching Center, where it can be repurposed as mulch.

If residents have a small amount of waste they can put it into their trash cart, just like other garbage. Please put grass clippings into a bag before putting it in your trash cart. Often, grass is pressed into the bottom of the cart and won't come out when the automatic trash arm tries to empty the container. Any bags filled with yard waste that are left next to a trash cart on pickup day will NOT be taken away.

However it is more environmentally friendly to take it to the city's Yard Waste Mulching Center where it will be recycled into mulch.
