Half Price Yard Debris Recycling

Monday October 29 - Saturday, November 10, 2012, (closed Sunday, November 4), residents can recycle their yard debris at Deschutes Recycling for half price - only $2.00 per cubic yard.  The yard debris will be recycled into compost and clean energy fuel.

FireFree encourages residents to complete their fall clean up and maintenance of defensible space by bringing branches, leaves, shrubs, and pine needles to Deschutes Recycling during this event.

"Since the City of Bend banned debris burning in 2009, this program has become an excellent opportunity for greater Bend residents to recycle their debris inexpensively and legally," says Katie Lighthall, FireFree Coordinator.

After dropping off your yard debris, take advantage of the 25% off compost sale. Compost is an essential ingredient to winterizing your lawn and garden.
