It is very important that household waste, construction waste, yard waste and grass clippings all go into their appropriate disposal areas. Grass is able to be composted, but not if household waste is mixed in with it. Household waste is baled to minimize volume in our landfill. When garbage is inappropriately thrown away, it can cause damage to our baler and garbage trucks. Thank you for your consideration as you dispose of your waste, it saves us all time and money!
