How must I bundle my brush and yard waste?

Yard waste is defined as leaves, grass clippings, shrub trimmings, plant cuttings and non-woody organic garden waste only. 

Brush is defined as wood waste from bushes and trees that is less than four inches in diameter. Pieces of brush must be no more than 4” in diameter and no more than four feet long. Brush must be tied with string (no metal wire) and bundled in lengths of four feet or less and weigh no more than forty pounds per bundle. 

Materials such as dirt, sand, sod, rocks, stumps or trunks will not be accepted. 

Yard waste and brush not meeting the above criteria will not be accepted at the Dudley Road Yard Waste Drop-Off Site.
