The city’s yard waste processing facility opened on June 21, 2010. It is one of the many services offered at the Waste Disposal & Recycling Center at 2115 East Club Blvd. Vehicles with hydraulic capabilities (dump truck or dump trailer) will be directed to the facility after paying the necessary fees at the scale house. Customers that will be unloading materials by hand will continue to use the residential dumping area behind the trailers at the transfer station.
