City re-opens compost collecting for summer

BOZEMAN- The city opened its garbage collection for yard trimmings and dead plants, such as grass clippings, leaves, small branches, and garden waste.

But city waste is asking for your help in keeping a certain type of compost out of the trash - dog poop.

“The little doggy baggie surprises that when people walking their dog or something - those are not supposed to be in there. And just other types of trash,” Russ Ward Solid Waste Division Assistant Superintendent said.

Items the city will collect-

- grass clippings

- leaves small branches 

- garden waste

Items the city will not collect- 

- sod, dirt, rocks

- concrete

- animal feces

- large branches 

Put your yard trimmings in plastic or metal cans that are clearly labeled "compost,” have your compost out and ready at your pickup location by 7 a.m. on Mondays.
