Limbs and bushes that fit should be inside your Toter. The limbs and bushes that do not fit in the Toter must be tied in bundles no larger than 5 feet in length and 2 feet around and must not weight more than 40 pounds each. Please put the limbs and bushes out on the curb away from the power lines and mailboxes. The Sanitation Department will pickup these items if they are bundled properly. You may recycle them yourself by delivering them to East Central Recycling at 701 East Centennial between 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. weekdays and 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. on Saturday. It is illegal to dump there at any other time.
Grass clippings can be picked up by the Muncie Sanitary District, however we encourage you to recycle your grass clippings. Grass recycling is the natural recycling of grass by leaving clippings on the lawn when mowing. Grass clippings decompose quickly and release valuable nutrients back into the soil. Lawn clippings can be used as mulch to provide weed control in flower beds and around shrubs. This works particularly well over a base of cedar bark or redwood mulch. Clippings shade the soil as they dry out, meaning you have to water garden plants less.
Carefully placing trees can help improve your home's energy efficiency.
