Grass Recycling

Curbside grass and leaf recycling is an optional additional recycling service for Meridian residents.

For an additional fee, you will be provided with a separate recycling cart for your grass clippings.

This service will keep the grass out of the landfill and instead, those clippings will be transported to a silage pit in Ada County where they will be reused beneficially for agricultural purposes.
