Yard Waste

sanitationSpring is here! And if you are in a section of Park Slope, Red Hook, Carroll Gardens, Cobble Hill or Gowanus that receives Organics Collection, here is a reminder that yard waste: including plants, garden trimmings, leaves, and grass clippings can be placed at the curb for collection on your trash day. Set out this material in the brown bin, a paper lawn & leaf bag or an unlined bin labeled “Yard Waste.” The organic waste is turned into renewable energy or compost, a natural soil fertilizer.

Branches and yard clippings generated by hired professionals cannot be set out for curbside collection. Professionals must dispose of the materials they generate at a permitted composting facility.
