Landscaping projects can be quite fulfilling and are an excellent way to increase value to your home. However, with every landscape project, there will be a mess left behind. As yard waste adds up, you may be wondering how you can dispose of it in the most effective way possible. By having a convenient way to get rid of your debris, you’ll be able to focus on your project.

Before You Begin

If you’re looking for the most efficient yard waste disposal solution, you’ll want to determine how much debris there is and how long your pickup time will be.

Now that you have this information, here are some of the best ways to dispose of yard waste:

Rent a Disposal Bin

Renting a disposal bin is one of the most convenient options that our loyal customers at Red Bins have to get rid of any yard waste or other household junk. These services are flexible and will allow you to rent them for as long as needed. When your disposal container is physically on-site, then you can get rid of items as you are working. Afterwards, when you are finished with your project, it can easily be removed when the job is over.

To make renting a disposal bin work to your advantage, you’ll want to pick a bin size that will suit your project’s needs. You’ll also enjoy this option because you don’t even need to be on-site as it is delivered.

Be sure to check the local regulations for your disposal bin. For instance, if you need to get rid of large stumps, ensure that you are allowed to dispose of these because, many times, they are not allowed. Ensure you get in touch with the team at Red Bins to determine the rules and regulations involved with our disposal bins.

Dispose of Yard Waste During Pickups from Your Local Trash Collection

Many cities have weekly trash services that will collect yard debris or waste in smaller amounts if it is appropriately placed into yard waste bags and set on the curb on collection day. You can even check with the local Toronto services to discover what type of waste they will collect and any other information needed.

The benefit of disposing of your yard waste during weekly pickups is that it’s inexpensive; however, there are many cons like only being able to collect small amounts. It also may not be available where you live, so you may have to hold on to your waste until collection day.

Schedule a Junk Removal Service

If you think that junk removal services only pick up your indoor household items, think again. They will also collect your yard waste, but base their fees on how much space it takes up in their vehicle. Be sure to be on-site when they provide a two-hour window so that you can have all your waste ready to go when they get there. The team will load up the waste for you as a bonus.

Junk removal does come with a cost; it depends on how much waste you have and what type it is. As a general rule of thumb, yard waste removal costs around $300 (if, for example, you have a maximum of 9 cubic yards of sticks, leaves, and grass clippings). A disposal bin rental only costs a bit more but generally covers 20 cubic yards of waste; so this option can be more cost-effective.

Environmentally Friendly Options

If you are looking for a more environmentally friendly way of getting rid of your yard waste, you can also consider using a compost bin to recycle it. For yard waste, specifically, all you have to do is fill the compost bin and stir it every once in a while so that it breaks down. Then, when it’s ready, you can use it as a fertilizer for your backyard.

However, if your yard waste has a large number of weeds or plants, then composting it would not be the best idea. Plant seeds and diseases can flourish during the recycling stages and will create growth wherever you place the recycled material.
