Just because it will eventually biodegrade, when illegally thrown in our open spaces and mesa green waste IS considered illegal dumping! Illegally disposing of yard clippings, tree trimmings and other green waste creates a visual cue to other people telling them it's "ok" to dispose of the materials in unwanted areas. Do your part and make sure you take all of your unwanted waste, including green waste, to the proper facilities. To report illegal dumping utilize the city's Report Rio Rancho link on the city's main page or by clicking here.
