The Vegetative Waste Facility consists of a dedicated section of the Solid Waste Facility. Leaves, grass clippings and brush can be dropped off by residents, municipal collection crews and commercial haulers. The leaves and grass clippings are stock piled and then formed into extended piles referred to as windrows. A mechanical windrow turning machine then passes over the piles, where the machine remixes and aerates the leaves and grass. Composting of the leaves is accomplished in about 5 to 6 months. Trees and brush may also be brought to the Vegetative Waste Facility where a tub grinder is used to chip small diameter trees and brush into a mulch type product available to area residents and businesses.
