This April, Let’s Pull Together (LPT) and Bainbridge Island Land Trust (BILT) are partnering to help you rid our island of invasive plant species. Join together with your family, friends, and neighbors to clear invasive species from your yard, garden, and neighborhood. Bring your invasives to the Bainbridge Disposal transfer station any SUNDAY in April and LPT and BILT will pay the price of disposal.
This is a great opportunity for our Island Community to remove and dispose of invasive species that threaten native plants and wildlife.
Invasive plant species are one of the leading causes of native biodiversity loss. Invasives spread quickly and can displace native plants, prevent native plant growth, and create monocultures. A healthy plant community has a variety of shrubs, herbs, and trees, but invasive plants can cause biological pollution by reducing plant species diversity. As a result, changes in native plant diversity reduce the quality and quantity of fish and wildlife habitat. Removing invasive plant species helps our native plant communities thrive.
A representative of LPT and/or BILT will be on-site at Bainbridge Disposal transfer station to assist you. Upon arrival, please let this representative and Bainbridge Disposal know you are participating the in the Island-Wide invasive species removal.
Please do not bring non-invasive yard waste mixed in with your invasive species. It will not be accepted.
Need to borrow a weed wrench for those deep roots? We have a limited number of weed wrenches available for day-use. Please be sure to reserve yours ahead of time by emailing Let’s Pull Together Coordinator Emily Helgeson.
