Green waste consists of plant trimmings that residents place in City-provided Green Waste paper bags or bundle with rope or twine for curbside collection on the same day as recycling. This program is only available to residential ratepayers.
The collected Green Waste is delivered to the Comal County Rural Recycling location and chipped into free mulch. Curbside Green Waste collection is not provided to apartments, condominiums, or businesses.
As easy as making a sandwich, composting is a great way to create fertile soil for your garden or yard, as well as reduce the waste you send to the landfill. Backyard and worm composting are two simple options.
There is no need to bag clippings; grass and leaf clippings can be recycled by simply leaving them on your lawn. The clippings contain beneficial nutrients and help retain moisture. For finely ground clippings, use a mulching lawnmower.
