How do I dispose of yard waste?

Groot will offer dedicated yard waste toters at a season rate:95-gallon, $185 or 65-gallon, $175;  and yard waste collection stickers at $3 per item.

Residents are not required to rent a yard waste toter.  They can continue to use 30-gallon kraft yard waste bags, 30-gallon can labeled “YARD WASTE,” rent a toter, or  do nothing if they do not have yard waste.  Kraft bags and cans will require a sticker.  The seasonal pricing for year one of the contract is $175 for the 65-gallon and $185 for the 95-gallon toter.  Since the contract starts July 1, and few months have already passed, pricing will be prorated for the remaining portion of this year is $109.38 for 65-gallon and $115.62 for the 95-gallon toter. Pricing for year two starting April 1, 2024, would be $180.25 for the 65-gallon and $190.55 for the 95-gallon.
