This is Thomas the intern. In case you didn’t see my previous post, I’ll remind you that I am the person who's been looking through your recycling for the past few weeks. While for the most part, everyone seems to get the general idea of recycling, I have noticed some confusion about yard trim.
"Yard trim" includes leaves, grass, and brush. Yard trim is recycled on your collection day. Just put yard trim out next to your other recycling, by 7:00 am on your day of collection. You may prepare yard trim in three different ways:
- in a reusable container marked by a green yard trim sticker,
- in yard trim paper bags, or
- bundled by twine.
|Oops! Logs in blue recycling bin.|
"Container" does not include blue wheeled carts either:
|Another oops! Branches in blue wheeled paper recycling cart.|
Reusable containers should be marked by a green sticker, so that the yard trim truck crew can spot them easily:
|Yard trim can identified by sticker|
Yard trim is picked up by a separate truck. If the truck's crew cannot tell what is inside of a container or bag, they may drive by and miss your items because they don't know that the items are for them.

Until next time,
