FREE Invasive Weed Disposal in April
Start pulling now! For the third year in a row the Bainbridge Island Land Trust is thrilled to offer free disposal of invasive plants every Sunday in April!
Bring your weeds to the Vincent Rd Transfer Station every Sunday in April between 10am and 4pm and the Land Trust, Let’s Pull Together, Bainbridge Community Foundation, and Kitsap County Noxious Weed Control Program will pay the price of disposal! Key invasive plant targets are Scotch broom, English holly, English ivy, Himalayan blackberry, tansy ragwort, English laurel and the noxious weeds on the county’s “Dirty Dozen” list. Please do not mix in non-invasive yard waste.
Invasive plant species are one of the leading causes of vegetation biodiversity loss. They spread quickly and can displace native plants, prevent new native plant growth, and create monocultures. Lack of diversity among native plants reduces the quality and quantity of fish and wildlife habitat. Remove your invasives now while the ground is soft and make room for native plants come fall and winter when the weather is best for planting!
A special thanks to Bainbridge Disposal for helping facilitate this important event. If you are interested in volunteering for the invasive disposal effort, please email Sinclair.
