Electronic Waste

Electronics require a different waste process as compared to your regular curbside or business service. Computers, monitors, televisions, and other electronics are considered E-Waste and should not be put out for pick-up with your household waste. Many electronic retailers offer trade-in or recycling programs. Visit the US EPA’s eCycling site to get ideas for the best way to manage your E-Waste.

Yard Waste & Landscaping debris

Most states now ban disposal of yard waste & landscaping debris in landfills.

This means that these types of materials should be going to composting facilities. We offer composting options at our affiliated landfills as well as at some Best Way Disposal transfer stations.

YARD WASTE SEASON STARTS APRIL 1st & Ends November 30th

Place your cart, by 6am or the night before, at the curb on one side of your driveway. A yard waste cart will be provided, there will be a uniform cost for additional carts. Please call to request a yard waste container before the season begins.

WHAT CAN I PUT IN MY YARD WASTE CONTAINER?

Yard waste consists of organic material. It typically is produced from the care and maintenance of landscaped gardens and lawns, or it can be a branch knocked loose by high winds.

This type of waste includes:

  • Grass clippings
  • Leaves
  • Tree limbs
  • Brush
  • Pruning from trees and bushes
  • Branches up to 2″ in diameter and 4′ in length

Properly disposing of yard waste can boost your property’s curb appeal. A healthy lawn and well-maintained landscaping can even add value to your home.

Composting

Compost is organic material that can be added to soil to help plants grow. You can try composting yourself or we offer options at our affiliated landfills as well as at some Best Way Disposal transfer stations.
