Residential Yard Waste Goes in Receptacles or Paper Lawn Bags
North Hempstead, NY – The Town of North Hempstead’s Solid Waste Management Authority would like to remind residents to properly dispose of their residential yard waste in either a loose receptacle (up to 32 gallons in size) or in paper lawn and leaf bags. Plastic garbage or yard waste bags are not able to be composted so please REFRAIN FROM USING THESE BAGS. Use Paper Lawn and Leaf bags ONLY! Residents can also bundle and tie brush in bundles no larger than two feet wide by four feet in length.
These rules apply only to homeowners disposing of yard waste. Professional landscapers are required by law to remove any yard waste created as the result of their commercial activity.
So for you “do-it-yourself” yard waste, remember to dispose of it properly!
