Lawn Waste and How to Prepare It for Debris Removal

Spring is finally on its way, which for most homeowners means a great deal of lawn maintenance. With this comes a lot of organic vegetation that will need discarding. And with some gardens, this volume can build up considerably, and disposing of this often presents a problem, more so when your trash collector refuses to take it. Read on to learn more about debris removal and how to achieve it.


Garden Debris and Waste

Below are a few common types of lawn waste which present problems for homeowners:

  • Grass clippings
  • Brush clearing
  • Dirt
  • Tree stumps and branches
  • Shrubs
  • Rocks & stones
  • Mulch


Do Some Investigating

Some trash services will offer lawn waste pickup, and some will not. Contact yours to find out if they collect and if there are any guidelines in place that you need to follow. If your trash company does not offer this type of service, there are other options. Junk and debris removal companies like Dr. Junk specialize in this kind of service.


Preparing your Waste for Pickup

If it turns out that your trash collection service accepts yard waste, there are a few things you should do to prepare your garden waste to make it easier for them to take.

  • Buy the proper bags. These can be found at most hardware stores or garden centers, and when possible, buy biodegradable bags to reduce waste.
  • Tie it up. There is also biodegradable twine available that you can use to bundle your yard debris.
  • Place your lawn waste at the curb along with your trash cans for their scheduled pickup.
