Yard Waste Wednesdays
Leaves and all yard waste must be placed in clear plastic bags only. Tree trimmings and hedge cuttings must be tied in bundles less than 4 feet in length and 24 inches in diameter; bundles must weigh less than 50 pounds. No more than 10 bundles per week may be placed at curbside of collection.
REMINDER: Yard waste does not include grass clippings. The City does not pick up grass clippings.
The City of Glen Cove WILL NOT pick up your grass clippings.Residents with proper ID may bring their grass clippings to the DPW Yard located at 100 Morris Avenue. Private Landscapers are NOT permitted to use this site for drop off.
The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation has mandated that the City of Glen Cove may no longer pick up residential grass clippings. The City has therefore implemented a “Don’t Bag It” policy. It is important for homeowners to recycle grass clippings by leaving the clippings on the lawn. Grass clippings are high in nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium – all vital elements for the health of your lawn. You’ll save money by not having to fertilize your lawn as frequently. Clippings left on the lawn DO NOT contribute to the formation of thatch, and DO NOT increase the incidence of lawn diseases, but rather, they reduce water evaporation from the lawn, and help keep the soil cooler. Leaving your clippings on the lawn also saves you from the cost and effort of bagging the clippings.
Private landscapers must take bagged grass clippings to an approved waste disposal or composting facility the City of Glen Cove will NOT accept grass clippings from private Landscapers.
Composting is a great way to recycle your kitchen and yard waste and ultimately can be used for nutrient rich soil to grow healthy flowers and vegetables. Composting is an environmentally friendly way to recycle your biodegradable waste and can divert as much as 30% of household waste away from the garbage can, and in turn, out of our landfills. Residents are encouraged to compost outside their homes.
