COMPOST IT! SEASON BEGINS APRIL 6 IN JOHNSTON

COMPOST IT SEASON BEGINS APRIL 6

Metro Waste Authority’s Compost It! program collects yard waste in Johnston, beginning Monday, Apr. 6.

Residents can purchase Compost It! brand bags and stickers at local grocers and hardware stores. The purchase of the bags or stickers covers the cost of curbside collection. 

Small twigs and branches, leaves and lawn clippings, as well as garden vegetation, can be collected.

•    Twigs and branches: each bundle requires a green Compost it! sticker and must be smaller than four feet long by eighteen inches in diameter.

•    Leaves and lawn clippings: these should be placed at the curb in Compost It! yard waste bags, or store-brand bags with a green Compost It! sticker. No other bags can be collected.

•    Garden vegetation: if it died on the vine, it can be disposed of through the Compost It! program. However, spoiled fruits and vegetables from the fridge belong in the trash.

For a complete list of retailers selling Compost It! stickers and bags, visit www.whereitshouldgo.com or call 515.244.0021.
