Here are some facts about EES:
- Does Earthbound offer yard waste pick-up?
Seasonal yard waste is a thing of the past with Earthbound! Now your curside service allows you the convienece of having yard waste pick up as part of your weekly collection, ALL YEAR ROUND!
Yard waste must be contained in a compostable bag (brown paper bags typically seen are perfect). An additional charge will be incurred in the event a non compostable bag is utilized. Please make sure that your yard waste fits in your container to avoid a small additional per bag fee. We do ask that folks not stuff their container with yard waste as this bogs down the tipping process at your curb. If there is visably room in your container and you have a bag of yard waste outside of your container that would fit if you stuffed it in, we will not charge you extra.
Seasonal Yard Waste Info:
- Seasonal yard waste collection occurs each Spring and Fall, which includes yard waste beyond what fits in your curbside receptacle. Please visit our Events Calendar for information on seasonal yard waste collection dates and additional information regarding this.
