removing and disposing of periwinkle

Asked April 16, 2018, 12:21 PM EDT

I live in Columbia and don't know what to do with the periwinkle I'm trying to remove from my yard. So far I have 7 black plastic lawn bags-full. This am's trash collection did not take them. Thanks for your help!

We checked with the Howard County public works department about your question. Waste collection crews will no longer pick up yard trimmings that are in plastic bags. You would have to put the periwinkle in paper bags or reusable bins.
