Yard Trimmings And Other Organics

Most communities are finding that to exceed 50% diversion of waste, it is necessary to recycle yard trimmings and, in many cases, food waste.

For enclosure placement and design that will meet this need, the key is to place an enclosure at a location that is convenient for landscapers. This could be a smaller, lockable enclosure (for use by landscapers, not residents) holding large carts or other yard-trimmings containers provided by the collection company.

Xeriscaping or other low-waste landscape design will also save money for the owner by reducing maintenance and disposal needs.
