Yard Waste

Leaves, grass and other yard waste in paper yard waste bags are composted at the Robin Hood Bay Waste Management Facility and will be used in future landscape projects. Composting yard waste will help reduce the amount of waste going into the landfill thus extending the life of the landfill for residents and users.

There is no charge for commercial or residential users for yard waste in paper yard waste bags brought to the Robin Hood Bay Waste Management Facility. Commercial users will still need to cross the scales and check in with the scale house attendant. Residential users will bring this material to the Residential Drop Off area where there will be a separate yard waste bin.
