If you’re a homeowner or gardener, you’ve likely accumulated piles of yard waste at some point. From leaves to grass clippings to fallen branches, yard waste can quickly become a nuisance if it’s not disposed of properly.
Yard waste refers to organic waste materials that are generated from maintaining a yard or garden. This may include materials such as leaves, grass clippings, branches, twigs, weeds, and other plant debris. Yard waste may also include some types of food waste, such as fruit and vegetable scraps, that are commonly added to compost piles.
Here are some common ways to dispose of yard waste:
- Composting: Composting is the process of breaking down organic materials, such as yard waste, into nutrient-rich soil amendment through the action of microorganisms. You can create a compost pile or use a compost bin to turn yard waste into compost. Compost can be used to improve soil quality in gardens, lawns, and landscapes.
- Curbside pickup: Some communities offer curbside pickup of yard waste during certain times of the year. Yard waste is typically collected in a separate container and taken to a composting facility.
- Drop-off locations: Many communities have designated drop-off locations for yard waste. Check with your local waste management or environmental agency to find out about drop-off locations in your area.
- Mulching: Grass clippings, leaves, and small branches can be mulched and used as a natural mulch in gardens and landscapes.
