Yard Material Accepted
At the Transfer Station, there is a drop off site for yard waste. Yard waste consists of grass, leaves, weeds, garden and flowerbed plants, bush and tree trimmings, fallen branches, and other plant waste. There are designated areas for lighter and heaver weight material. MASWU does not provide pull-off assistance. If you are unable to unload your vehicle yourself, MASWU recommends that you bring someone with you to help unload your yard waste.
Most of the materials are turned into compost. Compost is available to residents of McPherson County at no charge. Monday through Friday you may load yourself or pay a small load fee to have it loaded for you. On Saturdays no load fee will be charged. When leaving materials in the yard waste area, the following guidelnes need to be observed:
- Any form of bundling must be removed. This includes bags, boxes, strings, straps and ties.
- Sort out any non-yard materials (pop cans, wrappers, bags, lumber, furniture, etc.) that are in your yard waste and put them in the appropriate location.
- Any branch or trunk sections that are over 12 inches in diameter are put in a different pile.
