Yard waste collected on Mondays is transported to the city's Wood Recycling and Compost Facility, where it is converted into compost for citizen use and city landscaping needs.
Yard waste collection will resume Monday, March 4, 2013. During the interim, the city says yard waste will be picked up with regular household trash. Alternatives to setting out yard waste for curbside collection are mulch mowing and backyard composting. Composting bins are available for sale to Lawrence residents by calling 832-3030.
