Live in Scott County? Ditch Your Yard Waste—for FREE!

August 31, 2019

How’s your yard looking these days? Do you have a buildup of yard waste slowly but surely taking over? If neighbor Sue’s yard is looking pristine and you’re ready to show her what you’ve got, it’s time to take action! Grab your spouse, kids, friends… heck, even recruit neighbor Sue to help clean up the yard!

Once your yard is the cleanest on the block—that’s right, nothing wrong with a little friendly (OK, we’ll say it… eco-friendly) competition—you can get rid of the waste, FOR FREE, at the SMSC Organics Recycling Facility during our fall yard waste drop-off program. Running every Sunday from 8am-2pm in September and October, all Scott County residents and SMSC employees/team members are welcome to participate. Be sure to bring your ID or badge when you drop off.

What you can ditch for free:

  • Brush
  • Leaves
  • Stumps
  • Source-separated organics (food waste)

Wondering what happens to your old waste? You guessed it—it’s recycled! We take what would otherwise be tossed into landfills and craft nutrient-rich, natural compost, compost blends, and mulch for gardening, farming, landscaping, and more. Our Dakotah Roots products are available for retail and wholesale, so there’s a good chance that you’ll be seeing that very yard waste—that you were so eager to get rid of—back in your yard this spring.

Don’t miss out on this opportunity to get your yard cleaned up with free yard waste drop-off, especially before the first snowfall of the season arrives. As much as we love warm weather, winter is approaching with each passing day. Hey, not all news can be good news, right?

Thanks for disposing your waste in an eco-friendly way—see you at the SMSC Organics Recycling Facility soon!
