Yard waste is a type of organic waste material that will decompose or “break down” naturally over time.  Yard waste includes materials from general backyard maintenance and landscaping such as leaves, tree branches, twigs and pruning waste. Some yard waste and dried leaves can be composted in a backyard compost bin. Learn more about backyard composting.
