How to Dispose of Yard Waste and Other Compostable Materials

Most yard waste collection companies have a long, complicated list of dos and don’ts that makes getting rid of your yard debris a headache. With Abe’s Trash Service, yard waste removal is easy! To ensure your waste is collected and disposed of properly, we ask that you do the following:

  • Branches must be cut down to less than four feet and bundled.
  • Place all accepted waste in paper yard waste bags or in a 32 gallon or smaller container with no liner.
  • If a larger container is needed, Abe’s Trash is happy to provide a 90-gallon waste cart.

Our Yard Waste Removal Services

The goal of our yard waste removal program is to remove compostable waste separately from your regular trash and recycling services. However, our yard waste services do not collect all compostable materials—plastic “compostable” bags, for example, will not be accepted.

We do collect the following materials as a part of our green waste disposal and yard debris removal services:

  • Grass clippings
  • Leaves
  • Food scraps
  • Weeds
  • Outdoor plants
  • Household plants (must be removed from the pot)

Our yard waste removal services also include:

  • Tree debris removal
  • Tree branch disposal
  • Brush disposal
  • Disposal of shrubs
  • Grass disposal

Things to Keep in Mind About Yard Waste Removal

  • Yard waste services come at an additional monthly cost.
  • Yard waste pickup services run from April 1 through November 30.
  • Abe’s will not accept any plastic bags (even compostable plastic bags) as a part of yard waste.

The Importance of Yard Waste Recycling

In addition to removal of yard debris from your home, Abe’s Trash Service is also passionate about recycling this debris so it can be used responsibly to benefit the environment. The nutrients from organic material can be used as fertilizer or made into mulch. Wood from tree limbs and branches or tree removal can be used as firewood or building materials.

Omaha residents can make a difference to their community by recycling yard waste rather than throwing it away in a dumpster or in their regular trash cans. The city of Omaha benefits when its residents are responsible with their disposal of trash and yard materials. By scheduling yard removal services separately from your standard trash pick up, you are making the choice to preserve landfills, protect the environment, and give back to your community.

More Reasons to Recycle Compostable Yard Waste Separately From Garbage

Contrary to popular belief, yard waste can have negative effects on the environment when not disposed of properly. This is why it’s important to choose a responsible provider of green waste disposal services, like Abe’s Trash Service. There are several common ways that people use to dispose of their yard debris that is actually harmful:

  • Landfill Dumping — Not only do cities have limited space for their landfills, but yard waste left in landfills also contributes to air and water pollution.
  • Street Dumping — Purposefully blowing leaves and other yard trimmings into the street can cause storm drains to become clogged, which often leads to flooding. Not to mention, any chemical fertilizers that make it into storm drains can end up in the water sources of the area, harming the nearby communities and wildlife.
  • Burn Piles—Using a burn pile for large amounts of yard debris also causes air pollution and is a serious fire hazard.
