No trash may be put in your green waste container. Fibrous plants are not allowed in the green waste container because they jam the grinders at our facilities that are used to produce mulch. Poisonous vegetation (eucalyptus, oleander, etc.) contaminates our mulch piles with toxins, and they pose a threat to our employees and other plants.
