In order to collect all of our resident's yard trimmings & lawn clippings, our department asks that yard trimmings & lawn clippings be placed in brown paper leaf/grass bags.
Our employees will not collect yard trimmings if they are in plastic bags or trash containers.
Put all paper lawn refuse bags curbside & our employees will pick them up on your street’s regular trash day. In order to avoid injuring our staff other rubbish or metal objects should never be mixed with yard trimmings & we also ask that bags do not weigh over 50 pounds.
Some suggestions for getting rid of yard trimmings include:
Grind and compost yard refuse Use your lawn mower to mulch the grass and leaves.
Bring your yard trimmings to the Solon Service Department at 6600 Cochran Road and see the Dispatcher at the front desk for further instructions.
Put your trimmings in 30-gallon paper lawn refuse bags and put them on your curb on your regular rubbish day. These bags allow proper composting with minimal handling.
