Grass, leaves, and tree branches are accepted at the Yard Waste Site at no charge to residents.
The Yard Waste Site is located on Monitor Road, which borders the Transfer Station property to the East.
Grand Island residents can dispose of grass, leaves, and tree limbs & branches, for free Monday thru Friday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Beginning November 6th hours will be Monday thru Friday 9a.m. to 5p.m. and Saturday 8a.m. to 4p.m. until the site closes for the season, usually after the first good snowfall.
To dispose of yard waste before these hours, enter the main entrance to the transfer station located at 5050 West Old Potash Highway, stop on the scale, and check in with scale house attendant. Operating hours for the Transfer Station are 7:00a.m. to 4:00p.m. Monday thru Friday and 7:00a.m. to noon on Saturday.
Yard waste to be disposed of, must be clean of waste and debris. Residential customers who bring in grass, leaves, and tree branches are responsible for ensuring that their load is properly secured so as to prevent littering along the roadways, for dumping out plastic bags, discarding bags into a dumpster, and unloading their own vehicle. Free disposal of yard waste is only for homeowners and renters, not contractors for hire.
The finished compost is sold for $10.00 per cubic yard and wood chips can be purchased for $3.00 per cubic yard to help defer costs. Please call the transfer station office at 385-5433 to check availability of compost and wood chips.
