Zero Waste Yard Work During Stay-at-Home

For those of us lucky enough to have a yard, gardening can be a great way to get fresh air, relax and spend time with the family outside. Even better if your garden work creates zero waste or even reduces waste!

It’s easy with these tips from Zero Waste Marin:

Yard and garden waste, such as clippings, flowers, grass and leaves, can go in your green cart.
 Maybe now’s the time to start composting at home! Find tips and resources from Zero Waste Marin, here.
 Time to move along those tired pots or that statue that no longer appeals? Collect them in your “to donate” box and find them a new home when the stay-at-home is lifted.
 Some things never change! Pet waste should always, always go in the garbage.

For information about what kind of yard waste and food scraps go in your Compostables Cart, visit our Residential Compostables page.
