Bagged Yard Waste Collection Resumes Next Week
Bagged landscape waste pickup starts the first week of April on your regular collection day. Yard waste must be placed in a 30-gallon paper bag and placed at the curb with a sticker affixed for collection.
A sticker is also required for each bundle of sticks or other yard waste. Bundles cannot exceed 4 feet in length, 30 inches in circumference and 50 pounds in weight. The price of landscape waste stickers this year is $3.00. Collection runs April 1 through December 15.
Keep in mind that your compost containers can be used at no additional cost for yard waste, as well. Organic (compostable) material, such as yard waste and food waste, account for 24.9% of all the landfill waste in Lake County. Diverting organic materials to a compost bin means that our landfills won’t fill up as fast. Instead, food waste can be turned into healthy soil that can be used on farms and in many other ways.
