Composting of natural vegetation at various sites

Is your yard overgrown? Are there tree branches hanging over your house? Have you got piles of yard waste you've been meaning to get rid of?

You may be interested in a free disposal program called Compost Your Combustibles, running Saturday through July 30.

Residents may bring their combustibles to one of the following collection sites: Full Circle Compost, 2298 Heybourne Road, Jacks Valley Elementary School, 701 Jacks Valley Road, Topaz Ranch Estates Community Center, 3939 Carter Drive and the Genoa Cemetery on Jacks Valley Road. Each site will have an area clearly identified for the collection of your combustibles. Collection sites will be open to receive combustibles during the daylight hours.

The program is designed to encourage homeowners to create defensible space around their homes to reduce the threat of wildfire and recycle plant materials through composting rather than burning or dumping. Only natural vegetation is accepted.
