Our Philadelphia Yard Cleaning Services

We don’t do landscaping and lawn care, but we can help with other backyard cleaning services and debris removal. Here’s how our Philadelphia yard cleanup and removal solutions make yard cleanup easy and painless!

Yard Debris Removal

Municipal yard waste pickup and drop-off can be complicated and limited. Your municipality may offer a yard debris drop-off site – but hours are likely short, it may be seasonal, and you will be restricted to only certain types of organic waste. Your trash collection company may only pick up yard debris curbside on specific days and with specific limitations. This usually means only bundled branches under a certain length and diameter and a single bag of lawn debris in a biodegradable bag.

Main Line Junk makes yard waste disposal in Philadelphia simple and easy. We can haul away all types of green yard waste and debris, including tree branches and limbs, stumps, lawn clippings, brush, leaves, soil, rocks, and landscaping waste like plants and weeds.

We can perform yard waste removal services by hauling away all the debris you have gathered and pulled up. We can also help pick up tree branches, pull out landscaping, and gather up loose debris. Whether you’ve trimmed, raked, or bagged the yard debris already, or need some assistance, Main Line Junk can help.

Philadelphia Yard Waste Removal Resources

What to Do with Yard Waste

Below are resources to learn more about yard debris recycling, yard debris recycling facilities in the Philadelphia area, and how to compost yard waste at home.

What Types of Yard & Garden Waste Can Be Composted?

Composting can be done in an open pile or with a compost bin. Green and brown organic waste should be kept moist and aerated by mixing it every now and then. Composting reduces waste and creates valuable enrichment material for soil.

Garden and yard waste that can be composted includes:
  • Grass clippings
  • Plant cuttings and spent plants
  • Weeds that haven’t gone to seed
  • Dried leaves
  • Chipped branches and twigs 
“Green” organic waste is usually green and nitrogen-rich. “Brown” organic waste is usually carbon-rich, dry, and brown, like leaves and sawdust. A good rule of thumb for backyard composting is maintaining a mix of half browns and half greens, or ideally twice as many browns.

Avoid adding pest-infested, diseased, or chemically treated plants to your compost pile, as well as weeds that have gone to seed and may “contaminate” your compost. 

How to Dispose of Yard Waste

Pennsylvania law requires recycling yard waste. Burning leaves and other yard waste is illegal, but there are many options for yard waste disposal in Philadelphia and other municipalities. 

If you live in a mandated municipality (usually a population over 5,000), it must provide a leaf waste collection program that includes tree trimmings, leaves, garden residue, and similar material. It does not include grass clippings. This is because grass is high in nitrogen and produces ammonia. It requires special processing. 

Options for yard debris recycling include:  
  • Municipal curbside yard waste collection. Check with your municipality and trash collection company to find out if they offer curbside yard waste pickup and the specific rules. Mandated municipalities must offer seasonal curbside leaf waste pickup and drop-off events or centers throughout the year. Material must typically be collected in biodegradable yard waste bags for pickup. 
  • “Grasscycling” which means leaving grass clippings where they lay when you cut the grass. This helps fertilize your lawn, but you may need to mow less frequently in the summer and more often in the spring. 
  • Chipping to break down tree branches and other wood into chips or shredding for leaves and small twigs. The shredded or chipped material can be composted or used as mulch. 
  • Composting
You can also contact a yard waste disposal company like Main Line Junk for bulk yard waste pickup or yard waste that your municipality or trash company will not accept.
