Starting January 1, 2007 the landfill at Cherry Island no longer be accepted any yard waste. There are several options for homeowners that do their own yard work. Cherry Island will have a composting facility you will be able to take your yard waste there. If you are signed up for the pickup of recyclables, yard waste can be added to that for an additional $3.00 per month. The State is counting on other waste haulers, landscapers, lawn people, tree services, etc. to step up and offer this service also. They are also hoping that other composting facilities will open up. Neighborhood Associations can work with some of these people to set up certain collection days throughout the year for yard waste.
