The City of Highland Village has a composting program established for collected yard waste. Community Waste Disposal (CWD), collects yard waste from residents on Mondays and delivers to a separate vendor (LETCO) for processing into compost. This achieves dual purpose of being environmentally responsible and reducing the quantity of material going to the landfill.
The collection and delivery component of this program is included in the CWD garbage rate, while the City incurs a separate charge from LETCO per yard of delivered material. To accommodate this cost, a pass-through rate of $.25 is added to the utility bill as a separate charge.
