Yard waste, weeds, grass, leaves, coconut fronds, vegetable leftovers, coffee grounds
Composting these or using them as mulch material is an environmentally friendly way to handle these materials. Instead of a problem, they become a soil-helper by building organic material into the soil which plants use for their food. Mulch also keeps weeds under control, keeps the roots cooler, and helps retain the moisture. Composting is very inexpensive and will not smell or attract animals when done correctly.


Re-usable household goods, clothing, furnitures, toys, books, etc.
First try a garge or yard sale, or donate all of leftover after sale to either Salvation Army, Thrift Shop on Camp Watkins Road, across Onward Beach Hotel (Tel: 647-1569 Hours: Mon-Sat 9:30am to 4:30pm); Catholic Social Services (Tel: 653-8855/57); Guam Rehab Center on Marine Drive in Tamuning, across J.F.K (Tel: 649-0884 Hours: Mon-Sat 8:00am to 4:00pm) or donate them to your local school or church for their own rummage sale. They will issue a receipt upon request to be used for tax purpose.
