A popular way to handle leftover tree branches is to run them through a wood chipper. Once the branches are broken down, the wood chips can be spread around gardens and plants as a homemade, moisturizing mulch. Some cities operate communal wood chippers to keep the community free of green waste. Find out if your city has a yard-waste donation program or if your local waste collectors offer branch collection.
After you’re done mowing your lawn, there are several ways to clean up the grass clippings. One way is to rake the trimmings up, place them in biodegradable yard waste bags, and set them on your curb for pickup. Another option is to leave the cut grass on your lawn. This “grasscycling” process allows the old grass to break down and add nutrients back into the soil. Grass clippings can also be added to a compost heap or used as a moisture-providing mulch.
If you have yard trimmings piled up on your property, the most eco-friendly option it to recycle them.
Here are 5 ways you can recycle your yard trimmings:
- Use green waste in compost piles.
- Use trimmings as moisturizing mulch.
- Leave trimmed grass on your lawn too grass cycle the cut grass.
- Schedule a pickup from your local recycling companies.
- Hire a junk hauler to take your yard waste to a recycling facility.
Don’t let your trimmings go to waste – recycling is good for your curb appeal and the planet.
Yard waste such as leaves, flowers, old garden plants, weeds, pine needles, pine cones, twigs, vines, branches, and acorns are often accepted and picked up by local waste collection companies. In these cases, waste companies will provide you with a bin and often limit how much waste they will take.
If your local dump accepts yard waste, you can also take your yard waste directly to the dump on your own. Simply load up your truck or car and drop it off during their hours of operation. Otherwise you’ll need to arrange a way to get it there.
