Please dump only “clean green” materials at the yard waste drop-off site. Only acceptable yard waste materials can be disposed of at the site. The following are acceptable yard waste materials: Leaves, grass clippings, pine cones, pine needles, weeds (except herbicide tainted material), brush, pruning and branches (no larger than two inches in diameter and four feet in length). Any bagged material must be removed from the bags prior to disposal in the yard waste boxes.
We have noticed an increase in the disposal of garbage, rocks, bricks, and iron in the drop boxes lately. These materials damage the City’s equipment making it very expensive for the City to maintain and operate the over-all composting program. Most of these rules also apply to the clean green cart program also.
The yard waste disposal program is beneficial to the City and to Cheney residents and your cooperation is appreciated. Should you have any questions, please contact the Public Works Department at (509) 498-9293.
