Beginning tomorrow, Aug. 1, City of Asheville residents will no longer be permitted to use plastic bags for leaf and yard waste collection. Why? It’s part of an initiative to reduce single-use plastic in the 828.
Here’s what to use instead:
- Paper yard waste bags
- Reusable containers marked “Yard Waste”
- Heavy duty woven polypropylene yard waste bags
Pro tip: Composting your leaves is a great way reduce collection resources + improve your backyard’s soil and garden beds.
