Yard waste collection is a part of your solid waste program. Yard waste pick-up will be scheduled on your regular trash service day. Yard waste will be collected in a separate truck starting March 29 and ending on the second full week in December. Please have your yard waste set out for collection by 7:00am. Yard waste includes: Garden waste, leaves, lawn cuttings, shrubs & tree trimmings/pruning waste. Please place your yard waste out in your 95 gallon cart(s) if retained from your current provider, or up to 32 gallon plastic and metal containers marked “yard waste”. Biodegradable (kraft bag) yard waste paper bags can also be set out for collection during the compost season. To eliminate spillage and possible injury, please do not overload containers.
