Tip of the Month

Let's go Zero Waste!
Is your New Year’s Resolution to start your own Zero Waste journey? Don't overwhelm yourself by trying to eliminate all your waste immediately! Start small by identifying three everyday single-use or wasteful items that you can replace with a green alternative each week. Some items you could replace with more sustainable options are single-use cups or straws, items in plastic packaging such as soaps, foods, etc., or any other items that must be thrown away instead of recycled or composted. 

Leaf drop season is ending

Leaf Drop Season Ending

Leaf drop season ends on February 1, 2020, which means green waste street pile pickups will go back to monthly collection. Piles are limited to 5-foot long sections and may be placed in the street no more than 7 days prior to your scheduled pickup. To avoid possible penalties, please review the 2020 Green Waste Map & Schedule Flyer.
 
As a reminder, weekly Christmas tree street pickups will continue through Janurary 31st. Please place your tree curbside on your leaf pile pick up day, or cut your tree to 3-foot sections and place it in your organics recycling cart (brown lid). Trees with flocking, lights, tinsel, ornaments, tree stands or garland will not be accepted.


No Palm in Green Waste Piles or Organics Carts

Palm Material Reminder

As of January 1, 2020, all palm material, including fronds and trunks from both palm trees and palm plants, must be placed in a trash cart (gray lid).

The Yolo County Central Landfill opened its new green waste composting facility in October to turn our organic waste into soil amendments. Due to the fibrous nature, palm materials can clog the grinding equipment used in the composting process. As a result, palm material will no longer be accepted as green waste in organics carts or green waste street piles.
Keep your sprinklers off
