Attention residents of Beverly Hills: yard waste collection ends today.
Tuesday, Dec. 11 is the last day for curbside yard waste collection and it won't start back up again until Apri 1, 2013.
According to the Village of Bevelry Hills, if residents have yard waste to dispose of during the winter months, they can take it to the SOCRRA facility on Coolidge Avenue in Troy, across the street from Meijer.
Yard waste is considered compostable materials such as leaves, grass clippings, vegetable or other garden debris, shrubbery, brush or tree trimmings that can be converted to compost humus.
Yard waste also includes:
- Wood chips
- Garden vegetables and fruit
- Old potting soil
- Shredded bard
- Old Flowers
- Straw and straw bales
- Play sand
- Top soil
- Old mulch
- Corn husks
Yard waste does not include agricultural waste, animal waste, roots, sewage sludge, stumps and other treated wood.
However, if Beverly Hills residents are already thinking ahead to getting rid of their Christmas trees, the village will be chipping the trees during the first two weeks of January, weather permitting. Residents should remove all tinsel, ornaments, plastic bags and tree stands. The chips will be reused in Beverly Park.
For Birmingham residents, yard waste collection ends on the third Friday in December — or, next week.
