3. Items scheduled for collection are to be placed curbside AFTER 6pm Tuesday evening for Wednesday collection. This is City Code.

CHANGE COMING FOR YARD WASTE COLLECTIONS!

I attended a meeting this morning with representatives from Scarborough Landfill’s contractor – Maryland Environmental Services. We have been informed that YARD WASTE WILL NO LONGER BE COLLECTED IF PLACED IN PLASTIC BAGS.
The reasons: plastic is not bio-degradable; therefore, will not break down, and the plastic bags are jamming up the sifting equipment which has resulted in costly repairs and time.  WHAT TO DO: Use your trash cans, recycle cans and/or bio-degradable PAPER bags for your yard waste. Branches and sticks – still bundle with twine.
GET IN THE HABIT NOW as JULY 1st is when this goes into effect in Havre de Grace. With Spring garden prep just around the corner, this is a great time to start.
