How to Prepare Your Waste for the Landfill

To save landfill space, we ask that you separate the following items so that they don't end up being buried in our landfill:

  • Scrap metal
  • Large appliances
  • Clean yard and garden waste (leaves, grass, small trimmings)
  • Tree waste (branches, trunks and stumps)

We do not allow cardboard in the garbage.  Please bring it to one of our local recycling depots.
