It’s almost spring and your lawns, shrubbery and assorted landscaping are probably badly in need of care. And this means yard waste removal and trash hauling.
For many people, the arrival of spring is a wonderful time to get out and enjoy their gardens, spruce up their landscaping, or simply clean their property. Which usually means that they have sufficient disposal space in their municipal waste and recycling bins.
But not for everyone.
Going Large When It Comes to Yard Waste Removal
After the lengthy rains this year, especially in California, many people are faced with a much larger cleaning and disposal task than in previous years. Yards have gotten overgrown, landscaping out of control, and – for many – branches and other debris have accumulated over the course of a number of storms.
The little green bin on the curb isn’t going to be enough.
There are other ways of getting rid of it, however. For some – depending on where they live – burning is an option. However, even if it is allowed in your district, burning leaves and other loose yard waste presents hazards. And when the weather gets warmer and the dead yard debris gets dry, other hazards arise.
For example, even if you do not plan to burn your yard waste, it can still become a fire hazard. For example, the leaves piled up around your home can become a dangerous fuel source on their own. According to the University of California Berkeley’s Division of Agriculture and Natural Resources, you should move these combustibles to a distance of at least 30 feet from your house, garage, and other outbuildings. In addition, make sure they are clear of any propane or other fuel tanks.
In addition to being unsightly, broken branches and other large debris can become a safety hazard.
The problem for many homeowners is the need to haul the accumulated lawn clippings, shrubbery trimmings, and assorted branches and other debris. Unless you have a truck, or can borrow or rent one, the family SUV may not work out for you. Not to mention the work and multiple trips to the local landfill and green waste recycling centers.
