Yard Waste and Compost
Yard waste recycling is the unsung hero of recycling programs. Putting waste into your green bin at home or work is a great way to divert waste from the landfill.
If you have a home, yard, or garden, chances are you have a green waste bin. If so, you are part of a system that recycles yard waste into mulch, keeping all the nutrients out of the landfill. And if you generate yard waste but don't have a green bin, what are you waiting for?
Yard Waste is just the beginning!
This section also includes other organic wastes. Essentially, if it was once a tree or other plant, there are better ways to dispose of it than sending it to the landfill. This section will show you how.
Composting at home takes waste reduction to the next level. If you are interested in composting, take a look at these pages.
