Alternative Yard Waste Disposal Options

Users of the Recycling and Solid Waste Center are required to pay to drop off yard waste, and a solid waste permit is required. Users can pay by weight, or with a yard waste punch card.

However, many Tompkins County municipalities offer curbside pickup or drop off options for their residents. Recycling and Materials Management staff have created a list of how each municipality handles this material.
