2016 Yard Waste Collection Starts March 28

by jgschreier 3/16/2016

Get rid of yard waste right from the curb through Metro Waste Authority’s Compost It! program. Yard waste collection is on Thursday each week in Polk City starting March 28 through December 2, 2016.

There are two easy ways to dispose of yard waste through the program – or you can mix and match:

1. Bag & Sticker Program
Compost It! Bags
The cost of the Compost It! brand bag covers the cost of collection, no sticker is required. Do not exceed 40 lbs. per bag.

Store-Brand Bag + Compost It! Sticker
A Compost It! sticker must be attached to a generic or store-brand bag. The sticker cost covers the cost of collection. Be sure to face the sticker toward the street so the hauler can see it.

Compost It! Sticker + Brush Bundles
Attach a Compost It! sticker to each brush bundle and place it next to carts or bags. Bundles cannot exceed 18 inches in diameter or four feet in length.

2. Cart Service
A Compost It! cart has wheels, just like your Curb It! cart. Simply roll it to the curb on garbage day during Compost It! season. The 96-gallon cart can hold the equivalent of three yard waste bags, but you can always use the Bags & Sticker program if your yard waste exceeds the cart's capacity.

Purchase Bags, Stickers, & Cart Subscriptions
The cost of the Compost It! bag, sticker and annual cart subscription cover the cost of collection and to process the material.

Compost It! Bags $8.00 for a bundle of five ($1.60 per bag). Sold at many city halls, grocery stores and hardware stores.
Compost It! Stickers $1.25 per sticker. Sold at many city halls, grocery stores and hardware stores.
Cart $105 annual subscription. To enroll, call 984-6233, or renew at www.WhereItShouldGo.com.
