Grass Clippings only (no twigs, soil or yard debris).
Waste Management will collect grass with regular trash in closed plastic bags or containers. Please make sure that no yard debris is mixed in with the grass. Collectors will not pick-up under these conditions.
***Residents who wish to dispose of grass clippings should put them out with their regular trash collection in closed plstic bags or containers. Loose grass clipping CANNOT be put out at the curb or in the street. Grass clippings are not recyclable due to the herbicides that remain on grass for a long time and most make the clippings unsuitble for mulch which is why grass clippings cannot be recycled.***
