Green Yard Waste Barrel Program–in Mesa, Az!

by Teri Ellis on February 22, 2013

The City of Mesa is the only city in the entire state of Arizona to offer a curbside green barrel program! By participating in this erecycle2arth friendly program, Mesa residents can recycle their grass, plant trimmings and small tree branches. Material is kept out of the landfill and, instead, converted  into compost. Green yard waste barrels are available for $5.51 per month and are serviced on the same day as the blue recycle barrel!

Jacaranda255This past freeze has completely provided many refills of the green barrel! Our Ficus trees, Jacaranda tree and many of our bushes have frozen. That’s what we get for planting these awesome trees in the desert, but I know they will come back! Trouble is, we keep experiencing these freezes: 2007, 2011 and now, in 2013. But, during the summer, these trees keep our home much cooler, and I love, love, green! That’s why we have grass as well!

Anyway, for more information about ordering your green yard waste barrel, just visit Mesa’s Recycle site here OR call: 480.644-2221!

This event is great! Our weather is beautiful, and TONS of people are heading out to the Renaissance Festival in Gold Canyon ~ just about 12 miles east of Mesa! I’ve provided a link of a post I did in 2009 of pictures and great information, as well as information how to get there, etc.

Updated information can be found HERE.  I think you will enjoy checking it out if you haven’t done so before. As you can read below, I enjoyed our day trip in 2009!

One other item of interest would be the gun show to be held on both dates as well.

Have a great weekend! and enjoy our cool weather (for those who live here all year and are bundled up to keep warm.) Winking smile
