lawn waste, yard waste, recycling projects
Lawn and yard waste may constitute up to 50% of the total refuse sent to landfills during the summer months, accounting for about 18% of the total waste added during the entire year. Many of these yard and garden waste products need not leave the yard, or at least should not be destined for useless disposal in a landfill.
