Yard Waste Collection will resume the week of April 1 and runs through the last refuse pickup in November. Yard waste includes grass clippings, leaves, trimmings, branches and other material accumulated as the result of the care of lawns, shrubs and trees. Yard waste cannot contain any garbage, litter, rocks, sod or dirt.
Yard waste should be placed at the curb on your normal collection day. All yard waste must be placed in biodegradable paper bags or in a rigid container no larger than 32 gallons, clearly marked “Yard Waste.” Due to leaf decomposition, yard waste cannot be placed in plastic bags or put out for regular waste pickup.
Brush and branches must be in bundles no longer than 4 feet and tied with biodegradable string or twine; no wire.
