Yard Waste

We are utilizing an industrial in-line tubgrinder which has more flexibility as to type and size of yard waste it is capable of grinding. This expedites the grinding process as compared to our previous equipment.In 2008, we received an Innovative Recycling Grant from the State of Florida to identify a technology/process to remove plastic from the yard waste we grind and then to develop a market for that material. We are working with a local company in Crestview to use the material in an erosion control product.

Yard waste is collected curbside by your hauler and may also be taken to the Wright Landfill on North Beal Extension in Ft. Walton Beach and the Baker Landfill on Charlie Day Road in Baker. Diameter is limited to 6 inches, and lengths may vary depending on your hauler's specifications. There is a charge at the gate. The hours of operation are listed below.
