Hi, there is some confusion about this in practice. One neighbor reports that instead (after contacting the city to get yard waste labels), all our trash is incinerated now, and that there are no special collections of yard waste. Can you help us figure this out? The Forest Hills google group has been trying to work it through with little luck. Thanks in advance, Kate Pilson, 73 Weld Hill St. JP
