Representatives from Scarborough Landfill’s contractor – Maryland Environmental Services have informed us 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 Sept. 1st is when this goes into effect. With Spring garden prep just around the corner, this is a great time to start.
