The City of Green is striving to take steps to be more "green" and eco-friendly in all our practices, especially when it comes to trash, recycling and composting.
Currently when residents bag and place yard waste and leaves for curbside pick-up, the leaves are sent to a landfill, which is not ideal, and certainly not the most ecologically sound option. In fact, the best way to dispose of leaves and yard waste is to mulch the organic material in place to serve as nutrients for your lawn or flowering beds. For those with excessive leaves, we understand it's not always possible to mulch all the leaves in place and for these residents, we are looking at various options.
Please take a moment to share your thoughts about how you feel the community should properly dispose of leaves and yard waste.
