Recycling Reminder:
Please place items on the curb by 7:00 AM on your recycling day.

No Plastic Bags in Commingle Carts! They Clog Up Our System!
Plastic bags, such as grocery and retail bags, protective newspaper bags, & sandwich sacks, cause BIG problems at our recycling recovery facility. These bags clog up the equipment by wrapping around gears and wheels. To reduce the number of plastic bags at home, switch to durable, reusable bags for your trips to the store. Keep durable bags stored in your car or bike for easy access when shopping. Plastic bags can be recycled at the Ashland Recycling Center (Water Street).

Green Debris

green cartYard Debris Program
This is a great way to deal with green debris disposal year-round, and to keep organics out of the trash and our landfills. Green debris carts may be used for lawn clippings, plant trimmings, leaves, and other plant materials (if it grows, it goes). Branches must be less than three (3) inches in diameter, and must fit inside the cart provided. Eligible customers include those within the city limits of Ashland or Talent, as well as those within the urban growth boundaries of both cities.

Green Debris is used in a number of recycling processes, such as composting. Green Debris recycling produces rich compost which can be used by local residents and farmers, rather than going to waste in a landfill.

See our compost products page for information on purchasing compost made from Green Debris.

Ashland Rates:
The cost for this service is $7.00 per month.

Talent Rates:
The cost for this service is $7.00 per month.

Please contact us for more information.

Your Green Debris roll-cart can be used for grass clippings, leaves, weeds, plant prunings, brush and woody material, up to 2" in diameter, and 36" long. DO NOT place green debris in plastic bags. Material cannot stick out cart and lid must be able to shut completely and lie flat.
