Yard waste may still be picked up at curbside by your hauler, but it will be composted or mulched instead of going to the landfill. Residents can also choose to manage their yard waste on their own with a backyard compost bin or using a mulching mower.
The Environmental Department has created an educational curriculum on waste management called Trashology 101. The new curriculum is targeted to students in grades 3-5 (ages 8-11) and their teachers, families, youth-serving organizations such as scout groups, recreational clubs, and faith-based organizations.
