Recycling & Brush Disposal

Simple Things You Can Do

  • Compost yard waste.
  • Don't take unneeded napkins and utensils at restaurants.
  • Re-use grocery bags rather than take new ones.
  • Separate cans, glass, plastic, paper, cardboard and take to the recycling center.
  • Use cloth napkins at home.

Disposing of Brush

Because of air quality concerns, chipping is preferred to burning. Chips can be used as mulch around plants, helping retain water, putting nutrients back into the soil and reduces soil erosion.
