2012 Yard Waste Calendar

Posted on April 11, 2011


Did you enjoy the beautiful weather this past weekend? Perhaps you got outside and did some spring yard work. Wondering what to do with all the leaves leftover from last fall that you finally got around to raking up?  (Or am I the only one who leaves most of my raking to the spring?)

Never fear, the 2012 Yard Waste Schedule is here!

We’ll be keeping some of our leaves to add to our compost pile. The dried leaves balance out the fresher vegetable scraps and keep our compost humming along at a hot, non-smelly clip. (Interested in getting your own compost bin from the City of Somerville at a reduced price? Check out their compost bin program here.)

The rest of the leaves I’ll be putting out by the curb in their paper bags for next Tuesday’s trash day.

Hope you enjoy the new green shoots that are revealed when you rake up the old leaves. Happy Spring!
