Yard Waste Disposal - Curbside Collection
How should I dispose of yard waste & brush?
The Solid Waste Division conducts annual curbside collection of yard waste and brush during the spring and fall. All curbside yard waste and brush collections take place only on the weeks designated and only on your regular trash collection day for that week. A separate collection vehicle is dispatched to collect only yard waste and brush during the following designated collection weeks: Current Calendar.
Preparing your yard waste and brush for curbside pickup:
Leaves, grass clippings, plant waste, and light trimmings too small to bundle: use paper leaf bags or reusable containers marked “YARD WASTE”. Bags and containers cannot exceeded 40 pounds and 35 gallons.
Brush (sticks, twigs, branches and shrubs): pieces cannot exceed 4 inches in diameter and 4 feet in length. Bundle and tie with string or twine (no wire), or place in a reusable container marked "YARD WASTE". Bundles and any yard waste or brush not conforming to these guidelines will not be collected and will be left at the curb. Yard waste in plastic bags will not be collected.
