leaf burning More options for disposal needed

Posted on Jan. 29, 2013 at 12:00 a.m.

The front page of the Jan. 20 Elkhart Truth highlighted outdoor burning, and in particular leaf burning, as detrimental to the health of residents in our county. Two suggested solutions were to compost on your own property or take leaves and other organic debris to the landfill.

Composting is a great idea, but it can be impractical for large yards with many trees. In addition, what about other organic yard waste from bushes and trees?

Taking yard waste to the landfill is not a responsible way to deal with organic material which otherwise could be turned into compost or mulch.

I would love to see a place for county residents to take yard waste, much like the Goshen Environmental Center, which is only available for residents of the City of Goshen.
