Yard and Kitchen Waste Recycling

Taxonomy Code: TE-8920.6600-980

Community-sponsored programs which provide for the collection and composting of leaves, grass clippings, tree trimmings and other yard waste as well as food scraps and other waste from the kitchen. Some jurisdictions require that residents bag their leaves while others allow the leaves to be raked into a pile on the side of the road (or the edge of the property) on a designated day when a vacuum truck comes along to collect them. Some communities provide separate receptacles for the collection of yard and kitchen waste, pick up the materials and take them to a facility for composting. Also included are programs that provide home compost bins which enable residents to create mulching materials for their own gardens.
