Greenwaste is any type of brush or grass or non fiberous plant. In addition, most pallets are accepted in the greenwaste pile, as well as unpainted and untreated wood.
Greenwaste transported to the Transfer Station in plastic bags must be emptied before being disposed, and the bags disposed of as trash. Trash and dirt mixed with greenwaste loads must also be disposed as trash.
Greenwaste drop off is available to the public at a per ton fee lower than the solid waste tip fee. The greenwaste rate at the Mad River Compost Facillity and Hawthorne Street Transfer Station is currently $90/ton (7.5 cents/lb), with a $7.00 minimum for up to 140 lbs.
These items are NOT accepted in the greenwaste: Dirt, sod, palm fronds, bamboo, painted wood waste, pressure treated woood, dirt and garbage.
