Recycling Services and Curbside Trash Collection


Fall is the perfect time to compost your leaves. Compost is a mixture of decaying organic matter such as grass, tree and shrub trimmings, and leaves. Composting creates rich organic soil-like material called humus. Composting enables you to recycle your yard wastes, returning organic matter to the soil and providing nutrients for healthy plant growth.
