During the dead of winter, most people are probably not thinking about what to do with their yard waste as the lawnmowers, hedge trimmers, and other landscaping tools are dutifully stored in the garage. However, as soon as the warmer months of spring roll around, most homeowners, individuals, and business owners are eager to get a head start on renovating their landscaping after a long, cold winter.
Though most people equate yard waste with those seemingly endless bags of fallen leaves that we rake and collect in the fall, many people actually have an equal amount of yard waste (if not more) during the spring. Post-winter yard waste includes weeds, leaves, grass clippings, dead flowers and plants, brush, tree trunks, pruned branches and stems, dirt, roots, wood shavings, rocks and even old Christmas tree that have been sitting in an abandoned corner of your yard throughout the winter.
The extreme weather of winter often brings ice storms, strong winds, and blizzards that can cause major damage to the trees and other plants throughout your yard. One of the first tasks of many gardeners and lawn care enthusiasts is to get rid of those fallen branches, tree limbs, and other dead vegetation in order to allow for new growth to flourish.
Unless you have a huge wood chipper machine, or a spacious forest where you can drag those dead limbs to slowly rot back into the forest soil, most people tend to prefer to take these bulky yard waste items out to the curb in hopes that the local waste management company will come and haul away that organic yard waste. However, as we will explore below, counting on your municipal trash service to deal with large and bulky yard waste is not always the best course of action. Junk King of Worcester, however, offers the most convenient and efficient way to deal with large amount of yard waste at any time of the year.
Challenges with Disposing of Yard Waste in Worcester, Massachusetts
The City of Worcester operates three different yard waste drop-off sites for all Worcester residents that are open from April to November, and briefly open again in late December for people to drop off their old Christmas trees. The three drop-off sites for yard waste can be found at:
- 1065 Millbury Street – Residential drop-off center
- 300 Chandler Street- In the parking lot across from Foley Stadium
- 299 Clark Street- Near the East Mountain Street intersection.
According to the City Government,
“the yard waste drop-off and composting program is the most cost-effective method to collect and dispose of yard waste and leaves. The Department of Public Works composts approximately 10,000 tons of leaf and yard waste every year. After the material is composted, it is used as a soil enrichment for City use, and is offered free to City residents.”
This innovative program is a great way to keep organic waste out of our area landfills. Organic wastes, such as yard waste, generate an enormous amount of methane gas when sent to the landfill where they decompose with other types of waste. Methane is one of the most potent greenhouse gasses, and contributes significantly to global warming. Instead of “wasting” yard waste in this manner, the city composting program is a great way to turn your old branches, leaves, and grass trimmings into fertile top soil that can be used by backyard gardeners across the city.
Unfortunately, not everyone will have the means, resources, or the available time to take an enormous amount of yard waste to these three city drop-off sites. Unless you have a strong back, a chainsaw, and a heavy duty pickup truck, most people simply can´t take advantage of these free city drop-off sites. Furthermore, the yard waste collection sites require that all tree limbs are a maximum of eight (8) inches in diameter and eight (8) feet in length. Also, no yard waste from commercial sources will be accepted at these sites, and dumping materials other than yard waste at yard waste locations is strictly forbidden, is considered illegal dumping, and might land you a $200 fine.
