For extra plant debris: Tie or bundle branches (must be less than 4’ long and 6” across); Use large paper gardening bags available at most hardware stores; Use your own extra container (cannot exceed 75 pounds or contain dirt); Then set these out next to compost cart for pickup.
Make sure to break down boxes to avoid overfilling your recycle cart. Broken down cardboard boxes should be no larger than 3ft x 3ft. Place in or next to your recycle cart. Make sure it is free of plastic film and foam packaging. Place those materials in your trash cart.
