Materials Drop-Off Update
Due to the recent wildfires, we are anticipating an increase in volume of green and tree debris drop-offs. We are creating yard space so we can take the increased volume as long as they follow our guidelines listed below. Burnt material is OK as long as it is only slightly singed and not burned all the way through. We will be inspecting the material as it comes in, and will refuse any loads brought into Grab N’ Grow that don’t follow these guidelines.
If you have any questions or want to know whether your green and tree debris is OK for us to take, please give us a call first. Due to the increased volume of green and tree debris we may have to close drop-offs so please call ahead for more information.

Being environmentally conscious isn’t just something we like to talk about, it’s something we practice every single day, which is why Grab N’ Grow continues to recycle over 80,000 cubic yards of organic materials each year. 30,000 yards of that is green waste, brought to us by residents, landscaping companies, and tree services from all over Sonoma County. The other 50,000 yards comes from agricultural products, including grape pomace from wineries, apple pomace from canneries, cow manure from dairies and horse manures from ranches.
We are committed to producing the highest quality recycled green waste materials available. In order to do this, we have to be very particular about what green waste items Grab N’ Grow will accept for recycling. The material that customers bring in to our yard leaves as a part of a soil mix, compost or ground cover, so please take a few minutes and read our rules and regulations below on yard waste drop-off at Grab N’ Grow.
Some of our customers ask, “Why is there a fee for recycling brush?” When you look at the whole process of recycling materials it makes sense. Recycling costs money. There’s the labor of moving, separating, grinding, composting, mixing, and screening. Then there’s the cost of fuel for running the loaders, grinders, and screeners. We also need to maintain the machines to ensure they operate as efficiently as possible. All in all, this is a costly endeavor, but it’s one we feel strongly about.
