It’s spring lawn prep time! For most people, that means it’s time to clean up the yard waste that’s been sitting over the winter that you might have not gotten to from the fall and to set your lawn up for growing success and another year with a beautiful yard.
How to get rid of Yard Waste
- Dispose of It. Many communities and stores offer special yard waste pickup bags, but that doesn’t mean you can just put them out with your regular trash. Ask your local municipality for special lawn waste pickup days, which often happen on specific days in the spring and fall. If you miss the designated day, there are also some drop-off locations at certain local sites where your debris is composted or chipped into mulch.
- Repurpose Your Waste. You can turn your waste into something purposeful for your yard. Rent a wood chipper and make your own mulch by using it on fallen branches, shrubs, and other wood debris. Wood chippers can be rented by the day, but remember to read the directions and take all safety precautions.
- Compost It. The nutrients that occur from your organic debris breaking down help to improve your soil quality. Composting is also a green alternative to removing your lawn waste through your waste management company. It’s great if you already have a composting area for your home. If you haven’t set one up yet, it’s a great time to do so! Once you have a composting site, you can throw kitchen scraps, coffee grounds, eggshells, and other organic matter on the compost pile.
