If you live in the city limits of Bend, Redmond, or Sisters, for an additional fee, you can sign up for Yard Debris collection service. Yard debris roll bins are picked up every other week, on the same week as glass recycling. In addition to your typical yard waste you can also add raw fruit and vegetable waste to your bin, making composting easier than ever. This is a great option for those that can’t or would rather not compost at home, but still want to make sure their valuable nutrients are being put to good use!

Acceptable Items in Yard Debris Cart:

  • Tree and Shrub Trimmings
  • Leaves
  • Pine Needles
