Organic Waste Diversion

In 2016, the Town started an organic waste diversion pilot project through a partnership with MMSB to improve organic waste diversion in our community.

A new Municipal Yard Waste Area was established off of Corte Real Rd for residents to divert yard waste from the landfill.

Residents can deliver and properly place yard debris in the designated areas.

Accepted

  • Trees, branches, grass, leaves, trimmings and other untreated wood materials

Not Accepted

  • Painted, stained and pressure treated wood

All yard waste delivered to the site is mulched by the Town’s Mobile Wood Chipper (acquired through funding from MMSB). The product is used for landscaping purposes and community beautification throughout town.
