Curbside Yard Waste Collection Ends November 28

by jgschreier 11/5/2015

What You Need To Know

The last of the leaves are falling which means yard waste season is coming to a close. November 28 is the final day for curbside collection through the Compost It! program.

As you rake leaves, prune bushes, and get rid of spent annuals and garden debris, review these tips for disposing of yard waste at the curb.

  1. Remember, the “Compost It!” name pays for the cost of collection. If you purchase a bag that says “Compost It!,” you do not need a sticker. If you purchase generic store-brand bag(s), you need to buy and attach green Compost It! sticker(s). Brush and branch bundles are also accepted with a Compost It! sticker attached. Bundles cannot exceed 18 inches in diameter or four feet in length.

  2. Compost It! bags and stickers are available for purchase at many local grocery, convenience or hardware stores.  A bundle of five Compost It! brand bags costs $8.00 plus tax. The cost of store brand bags varies. Green Compost It! stickers are $1.25 each. Go to www.whereitshouldgo.com/yardwaste for a list of retailers.

  3. Yard waste is picked up on your regular garbage day. Please place bags least three feet from garbage and recycling carts and get it at the curb by 7:00 a.m. to ensure collection.

  4. If your yard waste is not collected on your regular garbage day, and you have proper bags and stickers, call 515-24-GREEN (515-244-7336) to report the missed collection.
