It always seems like a good idea to clean up the yard each spring, but what do you do about yard waste disposal? If you forgot to plan for that element of spring cleaning, Western Elite has you covered.
Green Yard Waste Disposal
While it’s true that yard waste items are fine to send to the regular landfill, it’s more efficient to separate your green waste for recycling. Western Elite helps facilitate the proper recycling of yard waste so it doesn’t take up so much space in landfills, and so it can be turned into products for future projects.
Benefits of Recycling Yard Waste
At Western Elite, we own and operate our own recycling facility. This helps us effectively reduce the amount of trash that ends up in landfills. Additionally, we can then provide recycled green waste by-products such as wood chips or mulch to help further beautify your yard.
Recycling residential yard waste on your own property, in the form of composting, is a great way to create rich soil for future planting. However, if you simply have too much green waste, or it’s cumbersome, it may be helpful to rent a roll-off dumpster. This way you can dispose of large yard waste—such as felled trees that are not easy to compost at home—and keep the rest.
Using a yard waste dumpster from Western Elite is also a safe alternative to burning green waste. Nevada burn laws restrict burning piles to certain sizes, and controlling a burn can be risky. Rather than playing with fire, rent a dumpster to help you safely remove debris from your residential property.
Saving on a Dumpster Rental
If you’re worried about the cost of renting a dumpster, consider making it a community effort. Talk to a few neighbors and see who is also planning some spring cleaning. Once you’ve collected payment from even just one or two neighbors, you can decide which roll-off dumpster is the right size for you.
What Items Aren’t Permitted in Yard Waste Dumpsters?
Some roll-off dumpsters have restrictions on what can be included; any dumpster larger than the Lowboy does not accept heavy materials, including dirt, rocks, concrete, brick, asphalt, and sod. Other items not permitted include any hazardous materials, liquids or medical waste. For a full list, be sure to ask Western Elite before you rent.
