The leaves have been falling for weeks, your yard clippings are piled in high mounds that rival the Pyramids. You’ve been meaning to remove them, to bag it up or even to mulch it. Then the days got shorter and the weekends filled up. What seemed like a good idea now seems like a massive chore. Green waste removal time is here!
Maybe this will help; do you know when you recycle your yard and green waste not only are you improving the look of your environment, you are helping the planet?
Green waste materials are extremely biodegradable, however, they take up large amounts of space in the landfills. When recycled, the materials can be turned into mulch and compost material and reused by consumers.
How to determine if it is green waste material?
A basic rule of thumb when thinking about green waste items from your yard is to think of items that are biodegradable.
Here’s a list of materials that are considered green waste:
- Leaves, flowers, and weeds
- Pine needles
- Uncooked fruits and vegetables
- Unpainted wood
- Yard and grass clippings
If you have any doubt about whether an item is classified as green waste, don’t hesitate to give us a call. We will be happy to help (925) 785-6726.
Does that price seem too good to be true?
Please be aware that some haulers that guarantee to pickup your green waste for extremely low prices may not be insured. Some have been known to take a customer’s waste and drop it off on local streets or behind commercial companies. You can be confident when you work with West Coast Junk, we always properly dispose of your green waste materials and have many satisfied customers.
