Ways to Reduce Green Waste


Composting, nature's own way of recycling, is the controlled decomposition of organic material such as leaves, twigs, grass clippings, and vegetable food scraps.  In order to facilitate composting, Covina residents are eligible to receive a free compost bin and a free kitchen scrap compost pail by attending a Smart Gardening Workshop held in Covina.  Contact the Environmental Services Section to reserve your bin and pail.

Grass Recycling/Grasscycling

Grasscycling is the natural recycling of grass by leaving clippings on the lawn when mowing. Grass clippings will quickly decompose, returning valuable nutrients to the soil.  Beautify your lawn and reduce waste at the same time!
