Recycling & Solid Waste Services
The Town of Union encourages backyard composting (the natural breakdown of organic matter such as leaves, grass, and vegetable scraps into a dark, rich soil material) and grasscycling (the process of recycling clippings by leaving them on the lawn after mowing). These activities significantly reduce the amount of waste that goes to the landfill, with the additional benefit of enriching soil and lawns. The Broome County Cornell Cooperative Extension provides free "how to" presentations for both composting and grasscycling.
