Grass, leaves, and tree branches are accepted at the Yard Waste Site at no charge to residents.
The Yard Waste Site is located on Monitor Road, which borders the Transfer Station property to the East.
Grand Island residents can dispose of grass, leaves, and tree limbs & branches, for free Monday thru Friday from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. and Saturday from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00p.m. Beginning Monday, November 5, 2018, the Yard Waste Site hours will change. The Site will then be open Monday thru Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Saturday hours will remain the same - open from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
The Site will close for the season after the first snowfall.
Yard waste to be disposed of, must be clean of waste and debris. Residential customers who bring in grass, leaves, and tree branches are responsible for ensuring that their load is properly secured so as to prevent littering along the roadways, for dumping out plastic bags, discarding bags into a dumpster, and unloading their own vehicle. Free disposal of yard waste is only for homeowners and renters, not contractors for hire.
The finished compost is sold for $10.00 per cubic yard and wood chips can be purchased for $3.00 per cubic yard to help defer costs. Please call the transfer station office at 385-5433 to check availability of compost and wood chips.
