City of North Platte: Public Service: Trash Facts

Trash Facts

The City of North Platte collects an average 128 tons of yard waste per week from North Platte residents during the months of April thru November.† Thatís an average of 256,000 pounds of yard waste per week, or 8,704,000 pounds per year.† This equates to an average 989 pounds (almost half a ton) per year from each resident that the City crews collect from.

You, as a resident, could turn your yard waste carts back to the City and save $3.00 per month for each yard waste cart IF you took care of your own yard waste by mowing your grass with a mulching-type mower and you composted other yard waste to make a usable soil amendment for your lawn and garden.† This could also save you in fertilizing and watering costs.

If you do have excess yard waste/tree waste, you can haul it yourself to the Cityís composting site at the Transfer Station and dump it free of charge.† Call 535-6710 for directions to the composting site.
