Yard Waste Disposal in Pottstown

The Borough of Pottstown now collects yard waste from its residents separately from regular trash.

There are pros and cons to this new service.

Pros:
1. It’s great for the environment. The yard waste is composted rather than just added to the heap of trash. Although I do have 2 compost bins in our yard, they simply can’t hold all the materials that I need to clean up each Spring and Fall. Rather than designate another corner of our yard for compost and further annoy our neighbors, I can throw the yard waste away.
2. It’s free. There was no increase in our trash service when this new service was added.

Cons:
They only pick up the yard waste once a month. For lack of a better place to stack the bags away from the weather, I line them up like soldiers on our front porch.

It’s a bit unsightly, which doesn’t please me or my neighbors.

Even Elly looks on disapprovingly.
