Yard Waste Drop-Off

Two Locations

Two Metro Waste Authority facilities are available to residents and businesses to drop-off yard waste. See the Rates & Payment pages for pricing.

Both landfills compost the material onsite and reuse it on the property. None of the material goes into the landfills.
