From April 1 to December 1 of every year, State law prohibits disposal of grass and leaves in the landfill. A separate composting facility adjacent to the Bluff Road Municipal Solid Waste Landfill is in operation to accept yard waste. Commercial refuse haulers and lawn maintenance companies hauling yard wastes can deliver clean yard waste to the composting facility. Brush and tree waste, which is free of soil and other debris, may also be taken to this facility.
