Every yard and garden has it, so why not turn it into something valuable?  Instead of tossing green waste out with your garbage, consider the options to the right.

By mulching or composting your green waste you are helping to conserve landfill space and water – all while saving money on disposal fees.  Large amounts of green waste is banned from the landfill.

Horse manure is accepted as green waste at BuRRT.
