Compost

Instructions

Break branches down to fit in your green cart. Branches must be smaller than 3" in diameter and less than 3' long. Please shake dirt off roots. All materials must fit inside cart with the lid closed.

Alternatives

Consider starting your own compost in your yard, and use it as fertilizer to grow your own food and flowers.

Facts

Leftover holiday trees from the winter months may be cut and placed inside your green cart for your normal weekly compost collection. If that is not possible, you can place your holiday tree at the curb on your normal collection day during the month of January. Trees left at the curb must be cut to a maximum of 4 feet tall.
