Recycle Yard Waste –
Pounds and pounds of grass clippings and trimmings from our trees, flowers, and shrubs accompany the sweet smell of a freshly cut summer lawn. If you throw your yard waste in the trash, you’re passing up an opportunity to help the environment.
According to the Environmental Protection Agency, composting all yard clippings could keep approximately 33 million pounds of organic waste out of landfills each year. Last year, Republic Services’ organics facilities processed 1.7 billion pounds of organic waste, yielding 277,847 tons of nutrient-rich compost. This compost is marketed and sold to homeowners, landscapers, golf courses, farmers, and some well-known gardening brands found at your local home improvement store.
You can help by diverting yard waste from landfills and turning it into compost. Just keep in mind that composting is not the same as recycling cans, paper, and plastic, so never place organic waste in your curbside recycling bin.
Simple Methods To Deal With Yard Waste
There are simple methods for dealing with all of those grass clippings. You can compost at home, use your city’s green waste collection program if one is available, or pay a service like Ready2Go Dumpsters to remove your yard waste. Yard trimmings can be added to an outdoor compost pile if you compost at home, and recovered wood can be used for a variety of purposes such as mulch and firewood.
If you mow your lawn so that the grass clippings are no more than two or three inches tall and leave the clippings where they fall, the clippings will help enrich the soil.
