Please do not place your yard waste in plastic bags. If you place your yard waste in plastic bags when you bring it to the landfill, please remove yard waste from the plastic bags upon placing it in the recycling container.
The yard waste collected at the Preble County Landfill is picked up by a local hauler out of Preble County, Ohio. It is then chipped up and used for mulch.
If you currently bag your clippings, the solution is simple – just mow your lawn and let the clippings fall to the ground. They will decompose quickly and because they contain important nutrients they will help feed your lawn. That means that you won’t have to fertilize as often as you may now. You also won’t need to water your lawn as much since the grass clippings are more than 80% water!
