What is Yard Waste?
Yard waste is vegetative waste resulting from the care and maintenance of landscaped areas, lawns, and gardens. Yard waste includes leaves, grass clippings, brush, twigs, mulch, garden wastes, tree trunks, holiday trees and prunings from trees or shrubs.

How do I get rid of yard waste?
You can call your local trash pickup service to arrange a pickup. This isn’t an option for everyone, since some areas don’t pick up yard waste. Those that do offer the service often have limits on how much they will take, so if you have large amounts of waste they might not be able to take it all.
You can also take it to the dump on your own. You’ll need to make sure your local dump accepts yard waste, since some don’t. If you have a truck, it’s easy to transport your yard waste on your own, otherwise you’ll need to arrange a way to get it there.
If you mostly have heavy branches, tree stumps, and shrubs, you can rent a wood chipper. This essentially turns your yard waste into mulch, which can be used in your garden. This is a great option for those with large yards, but won’t work for all situations.

We’re a full service junk removal company, which means we’ll take care of everything for you. We’ll do all the heavy lifting and ensure that your yard waste is properly disposed of.
