Compost

Instructions

Grass and weeds are 100% compostable! Place in the green cart. Sod and dirt are not accepted in the green cart. Dirt slows the composting process.

Alternatives

Collect yard debris in a pile in your yard and let it sit for several months to be turned into compost. Must be composted properly to be effective.

Facts

Weed seeds will die in most commercial compost processes, since they reach approx. 160° F. Weed seeds should not remain viable after exposure to 140° F for 14 days.
