Items For Drop Off


Residents can drop off leaves, grass clippings and small branches. Food scraps are not accepted because they attract unwanted pests and create contamination in the finished compost. Additional processing must occur with the addition of materials beyond yard waste and this is currently not in effect.

Yard Waste Bins


Currently, single dwelling houses and duplexes have individual yard waste bins for leaves, grass clippings, and small branch 1/4" in diameter. Please do not put branches greater than ¼” in diameter in your yard waste bin as they can cause damage to the equipment at Newell Recycling.Yard waste should be placed directly into the compost bin without bagging. 

Backyard Composters


The City of Brooks offers a $25 rebate for any resident that purchases a backyard composter from a local retailer. Bring your receipt to City Hall and receive a credit on your utility account.
