Spring is a wonderful time of year for cleaning and landscaping in your yard. The air is still cool and any foliage you plant will have the warm summer ahead of them to grow in. Once the job is done or even before the job begins, there is going to be waste that needs to be removed from your yard. Whether you are taking care of a new project or performing weekly maintenance on your lawn, Junk Angel has some tips on common Orlando yard waste removal tactics to make your job easier:
Classify it as yard waste
Leaves, grass clippings, tree branches and weeds are all examples of yard waste. Fences, landscaping debris and pressure treated wood are not yard waste and should be kept separately from yard waste pickup.
Keep out the water
Drill holes in the bottom of your garbage cans to let any water from the lawn waste drain out and prevent the cans from being too heavy. In addition to this, keep the lids on your cans until collection day to keep rain from getting in.
Bundle your branches
Branches should be cut down to four feet in length and four inches in diameter. These branches should be bundled and tied together using string, not metal or wire, and should not exceed 40 pounds per bundle.
Hold the soil
Discarded plants should have the soil removed from their roots before they are added to the yard waste bin. Soil is not collected with yard waste.
Each county will have their own rules and regulations when it comes to Orlando yard waste removal in your area, so be sure to check what is acceptable to put on your curb for disposal before starting a project.
