Disposal Options

Residential yard waste can be dealt with in three ways:

Composting

Residents can build their own compost piles or bins to deal with yard debris and food waste. To learn more about composting, click the link to the left.     


Curbside Pick-Up

Customers of Sanitary Service Company (SSC) and Nooksack Valley Disposal can arrange to have yard debris picked up with their regular recycling and garbage service.
