GREEN WASTE RECYCLING CART
will result in removal of the cart.
Our curbside recycling trucks pick up your grass, leaves, yard trimmings, and tree branches at the curb - what could be more convenient?

Our drivers collect this material and bring it back to the Transfer Station where it is processed at the City's 4.5-acre compost facility. We sell high-grade finished compost in bulk quantities and small amounts for the home gardener.
