Where does the yard waste for recycling that they collect on Mondays go? I understand that it goes to the regular dumps, or do they truly recycle?

Yard trimmings are collected on Mondays and are transported to the city's Wood Recovery and Composting Facility at 1420 E. 11th Street, said Mollie Mangerich, a waste reduction and recycling specialist with the city. Last year the city composted 9,670 tons of grass and leaves and this spring gave away finished compost to more than 1,000 households. Compost is also used by the city in landscaping projects, Mangerich said.
