Standard Service
Yard waste is accepted in MWA Compost It! Brand bags or generic bags and bundles with a Compost It! Sticker. Brush and other trimmings should be bundled with a length less than 4 feet and a diameter of less than 18 inches.

Visit the Where It Should Go website for more information on the Compost It! Program and locations to purchase Compost It! Stickers and bags.

Premium Service
The premium service allows residents to use a convenient, wheeled container to dispose of yard waste at the curb. The carts are emptied weekly on regular collection day during yard waste season. New customers pay a $25 enrollment fee and purchase an annual program sticker to attach to the container. This sticker price covers the cost of the hauler picking up the yard waste for the annual Compost It! season. The 2016 sticker fee is $105.
