Most people associate yard waste with regular waste removal. This is not actually the case at all. Yard waste is not only different than your traditional trash and waste but it should be disposed of separately, by different means. Yard waste is different in several ways, one being that some of it can be recycled and repurposed for everyday uses. Rather than wasting limited, precious space in our local landfills, one should repurpose yard waste whenever possible.
This is something that our office strongly believes in. Whether you are interested in our services, want to know more about recycling, or just have simple questions, we are here for you. All it takes is to give our office a call.
Understanding What Yard Waste Is
Given that most people associate yard waste with traditional rubbish and trash removal, they don’t really know what yard waste is. When you think of yard waste, you should think of all vegetable and organic matter.
This vegetable and organic matter is something that usually accumulates after caring and maintaining your lawn, hence the name yard waste. This could be anything from your fine grass clippings, to fallen tree branches, dead flowers, plants, walnuts, apples, mulch, and much more. Old holiday trees like Christmas and Easter trees can even be considered yard waste.
You might be surprised to hear it, but yard waste accounts for a huge portion of the total waste in dumps and landfills. Despite this, there is honestly no need to put this type of waste here. It’s just the easier option for many.
What You Can Do With Your Yard Waste
If yard waste doesn’t need to be disposed of in landfills and dumps, what can be done with it? That’s an excellent question and one we are more than happy to answer. When it comes right down to it, there are a variety of unique things that can be done to repurpose this type of waste, starting with calling us.
Waste Collection: We are a full-service yard waste removal company that provides dedicated collection services for your yard waste. Most cities will provide residents and businesses with specific disposal bags or buckets for this type of organic material. This is usually collected by a separate municipal collector. There are also a lot of privately owned and ran removal services like ours. You’ll learn more about our services later, but what you need to know right now is they’re available and here for your utilization.
Composting: Given that yard most yard waste is biodegradable, most of it can effectively be used in compost. It can be used as essential nutrients to feed your plants, mulch, and gardens. This being said, one has to be careful when going this route because there is always the potential for disease. It’s entirely possible that your dead grass clippings or flowers are infected with unwanted diseases. Most of the time, a quick visual inspection can determine if this is the case or not.
Grass Recycling: Did you know that you could nourish your lawn naturally without composting when you take advantage of grass clippings? You can! All you need to do is simply spread them on top of your mulch or lawn, and it will provide it with much-needed nutrients.
Mulching: Speaking of mulch, there are some types of yard waste that can be used as mulch. If you live in a suburb or a big neighborhood that has an association, you can check with them and see if they offer a communal chipper. Some neighborhoods offer communal chippers to the residents, where you can grind up branches and twigs, turning them into mulch that can be used to nourish your lawn.
Year-Round Waste Removal
Even though you don’t have to cut and mow your lawn in the winter, it doesn’t mean there won’t be yard waste. There will probably be more leaves and fallen branches during this time. Unfortunately, the weather makes it much more difficult to get out there and clean the waste yourself.
This is where our services could prove to be useful. We offer year-round waste removal. Whether it be a piping hot summer afternoon or a freezing cold weekend night, we’ll dispatch a professional removal team to your home to gather the waste and haul it off.
We Bag And Tag
This is another area where our services are different than our competition. We don’t just make you bag your own waste and sit it by the curb, although this is an option, we’ll physically come on the property, bag the waste, label it, and haul it off. Unfortunately, not everyone has the physical means to bag their own waste or even the time.
And that’s okay. This is something we completely understand and why we are more than willing to offer a full-service removal for anyone interested. If you want a no-contact removal, we’ll provide you with that as well. All you need to do in this situation is bag the trash, label it, set it by the curb, and give us a call.

Some situations might require special thought and attention, but for the most part, yard waste removal is straightforward. This being said, we always try to conduct ourselves in the most professional manner possible while making sure our employees do as well.
This is one of the reasons we carry specific insurance policies. If someone gets hurt during the job or something ends up stolen or damaged, you don’t have to worry.
