Alternative Yard Waste Disposal Options

As of January 1st, 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.

Additionally, Christmas trees are being accepted free of charge at the Recycling and Solid Waste Center until February 1st. See our post about free Christmas tree drop off.
