As the snow melts from lawns during the spring, many residents find themselves with an excess of leaves/yard waste they wish to dispose of. Through the month of March, please remember to place those leaves, grass and yard waste (other than limbs and tree branches) insides brown paper yard-waste bags and they will be picked up by City of Elyria crews on your regularly scheduled sanitation pickup day.
Weather permitting, the Elyria Regional Compost Facility operated by Barnes Nursery and located at 45 Chestnut Street will be open for business on April 1st to accept your yard waste free of charge. Residents will again be asked to deliver their yard waste to that facility for disposal. Hours will be as follows:
Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday: 9am-5pm
Please contact the City of Elyria Department of Sanitation at 440-322-3895 with any questions.
Yard waste bags are available free of charge at Elyria City Hall (131 Court Street).
