Yard Clipping Collection

From today’s Savannah Morning News . . .

Along with the start of curbside recycling, Savannah also initiated its yard clipping collection last week.

By state law, yard waste cannot be commingled with household waste in a landfill. Separating it allows the city to compost yard waste.

Yard waste is collected on the day after recycling and household garbage collection. It can be placed in a container of up to 32 gallons in volume, stacked in neat bundles of no more than 4 feet in length, 12 inches in diameter, and 40 pounds, or placed in yard bags.

A city survey indicated the bags are available at these locations:

— Publix – Twelve Oaks and Largo Plaza.

— Home Depot – Abercorn Street and Victory Drive.

— Kroger – Abercorn Street, Mall Boulevard and Ogeechee Road.

— Lowes – Abercorn Street.

    …Well even as of 2012, Savannah has NOT gotten it’s ducks in a row at all. What a joke! No business recycling? Styrofoam galore? Waste management is certainly not very managed to this day. Let’s get some other people in office. It’s about time – the landfills can’t wait.
