porcelain berry vine

Asked August 21, 2017, 10:54 AM EDT

I dug a large porcelain berry vine from the wooded area of my yard (1 1/2" diameter, 15 ft long). I would like to kill it before putting it in the yard waste recycle, but don't know how to treat it. Please advise. Thank You. Virginia

It would be best to put the porcelain berry in a trash bag and put it in your regular trash rather than the yard waste recycling.
