Boise residents can now toss their yard waste and organics into green-lidded bins provided by the city. The program keeps added waste from entering the landfill. Republic Services transports the material to a composting facility south of Boise at Twenty Mile South Farm in a partnership with Boise City. The organic material is processed for 55-60 days and should be available this fall to city residents.
