YARD DEBRIS must be divided into two categories and disposed of in the proper bunker:

The LEAF bunker:
Small twigs and yard and garden debris such as leaves, garden plants, sawdust, clean and undyed mulch, etc.  Woody twigs up to 1/4 inch in diameter are also allowed.  Larger wood should be deposited in the “clean wood” area.

The GRASS bunker:
Grass clippings, hay, straw, dirty undyed mulch, and sod.

All CSWD Drop-Off Centers also accept leaves and non-wood yard debris. See Yard Debris in our A-Z list for specifications and quantity limits.
