Yard Waste

bagged leavesGrass clippings, leaves, limbs, and brush are picked up from your home once a week on your regular collection day.

Put leaves and clippings in paper bags, CLEAR plastic bags, strong cardboard boxes, or an approved black yard waste cart. The clear bags help crews quickly identify yard waste without tearing open every bag.

Limbs and brush must be bundled (tied) in lengths of four feet or less, weighing not more than 50 pounds.

Tree service contractors are responsible for removal and proper disposal of all material generated by their work.

Yard waste collection begins at 7:00 a.m. Rollout containers which are not out when the truck passes, will not be collected until the next regularly scheduled pickup day.

If you'd rather use a roll-out cart for yard waste, you can buy one for $57.
