Follow your municipal regulations for yard waste. Please do not place branches, leaves, or grass in your curbside recycling container. Some communities collect yard waste separately to make compost. Other municipalities direct yard waste into the trash.
You can always compost at home. Information is available at your local office of the Cornell Cooperative Extension and on these websites:
